Fri 6/28: Gay Secrets of the Met SOLD OUT

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

Sat 6/8: Un-hung Heroes at the Met

Nowadays people seem to consider the size of certain male body parts terribly important.  The subject even came up in the presidential campaign, and ads about whether "size matters" are a dime a dozen.  Yet when we go to an art museum, the guys without clothes are distinctly below average real-life size. Why that is?  Were men really smaller once upon a time? Or did they prefer it for aesthetic reasons? Some other reason? Learn why the world's art museums are full of unhung heroes. You'll come away with a whole new understanding of art, and maybe even of size. BOOK NOW
