Queer Perspectives is 10!
Thursday 9 November / 18.00 – 21.00
2017 marks the fiftieth anniversary of the partial decriminalisation of male homosexuality in England and Wales and is the tenth birthday of
Queer Perspectives, the National
Portrait Gallery’s pioneering quarterly programme curated and hosted by artist Sadie Lee. Over the past decade Sadie has welcomed guests – including Ali Smith, Sunil Gupta, David McAlmont, Andrew Logan, Amy Lamé, Richard Dyer, David Holah, Neil Bartlett, Scottee and Bird La Bird – to discuss people in the Gallery’s Collection that have a personal resonance, teasing out surprising links and hidden histories. To celebrate, we’re throwing a FREE birthday bash on Thursday 9 November and you’re invited. Join us for an extravaganza featuring performances, pop-up bars, talks, tours and a DJ set by the legendary John Sizzle.
