Description

Gay Secrets of the Met Museum

Saturday Dec 10 at 4pm

Led by our favorite queer guide, Professor Andrew Lear

Where: Meet inside the main entrance (to the right, next to the statue of the Sphinx)

When: Meet and depart at 4pm. At the end of the tour we will head to one of the bars of Met for cocktails

Cost: $45 full price*; $39 seniors*; $25 Met members and students

Join us for our most popular tour of the Met. We will explore some of the Met's queer treasures, from ancient Greek nudes (and erotic vase-painting, on which Professor Lear is a world expert!) to homoerotic works from the Renaissance, and a panoply of modern works, some by LGBT artists, some portraying LGBT people, and some expressing same-sex desire. Famous artists and personalities, such as Caravaggio or Gertrude Stein, will appear-but so will lesser-known artists and works whose homoerotic charge is often ignored (including images used in homosexual initiation rites in New Guinea!).

*NOTE: "Full Price" and "Senior" price include cost of admission to the museum as well as the tour. The $25 cost for Met members and students is for the tour only (please bring your member ID or student ID to gain entry to the museum). The tour is operated by Oscar Wilde Tours and is not officially an offering of the Met Musem. Price of admission does not include beverages. No refunds or exchanges.
