Queering the Whitworth Tour

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.
