Announcing our newest Gay tour of the Met. On this 2 hour tour you will explore the awesome oddities of the Met. See the jars in where Egyptians kept mummified lungs, livers and various monsters. Gape at the amazing African power figures that witch doctors stuffed full of nails to stop the curses of sorcerers. Check out the Congolese mask that looks a lot like a certain most disgusting American president. Get into the Met's headhunting collection and see their own hook used to hang your skull collection. You'll see decapitations, castration (ouch), the creepiest murderess you’ve ever seen, the Met's favorite mummy and a LOT more. Plus - if the room is open - you might get a peek at the supernatural cradle that rocks on its own. Led by our favorite queer museum guide, Professor Andrew Lear
