To coincide with LGBT History Month, The Whitworth will be running a tour that will take in eleven works from our collection, stretching from Renaissance prints to contemporary wallpaper, some of which are currently on display in our exhibitions. Stories will be retold from ancient Rome, the effects on people implicated in the first public debate on homosexuality in the 1700’s, and remember forgotten artists that were once celebrated in their time.
Join this guided tour of PHM’s main galleries and discover how the history of gender and sexuality has been affected by society, politics and activism over the past 200 years.
