Love, Sex and Metaphor: A Queer Gaze

What makes a picture queer? What happens to a painting when confronted with the private (queer) imagination? Sadie Lee, artist, and Shaun Levin, writer, explore the portraits they fancy and the paintings that inspire them.

Coming Out of the Picture - Gay and Lesbian Soho

A one-day event, the first of a series, which makes the connection between lesbian, gay, bi-sexual and trans-gendered (LGBT) people, portraits from the National Portrait Gallery and the built environment. Enter into the world of some of the LGBT characters that have lived, worked and played in Soho, through the paintings. Then walk along the streets that have witnessed fascinating LGBT trials and triumphs over the centuries. In association with Kairos in Soho
