Sat 7/21: Gay History Walking Tour

We all know about the Stonewall riots in 1969. But who knows that Mae West was arrested in Manhattan for producing a pro-gay-rights play in 1926? Or that Walt Whitman read his homoerotic poems to friends at a bar on Broadway? Professor Andrew Lear has designed this tour to bring New York's gay *history* out of the closet.  We leave from the historic Stonewall Inn (come early or stay after to enjoy an adult beverage).

Gay Secrets of the Met - Fri 8/3

Join The Men Event for the most popular tour of the Met, led by one of the world authorities on Gay art. You 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!). At the end of the tour, the group will head to one of the bars that is open for Met Fridays. BOOK NOW
