I’m really excited to be a part of the second Queer and Now event at the Tate Britain.
“This is a day to come together to inspire future generations through the preservation of a celebration of queer lives and culture. The festival is curated by E-J Scott, from the Museum of Transology, with Tate’s Learning teams and a dynamic cast of artists, cultural producers, commentators, activists, supporters and Tate’s own LGBTIQ+ staff network, Queer and Now places community conversation and creativity at the heart of the gallery.”
I will be part of the discussion “what does a queer museum look like?” alongside some absolute legends of the queer heritage world, including Join E-J Scott (curator of the Museum of Transology), Dan Vo (Museum Detox), Damien Arness-Dalton (Queerseum), Joe Galliano (CEO, Queer Britain), Rachael Lennon (Programme Curator, Prejudice and Pride, National Trust) Sean Curran (Community Learning Manager, Sutton House, National Trust) and Zorian Clayton (Curator of Prints and chair of the LGBTQ working group at the V&A).
The line up for the whole day is here and the discussion begins at 14.15. It’s free, but make sure to get there in good time to get a seat!
