What was once called “the love that dare not speak its name” is being given a red carpet treatment by the Metropolitan Museum with a showing that both celebrates gay art and reminds viewers that what’s exclusive today was not so long ago simply forbidden.

Art Historian Andrew Lear will lead members of Out Professionals and friends through a private collection of the Metropolitan Museum’s most homoerotic works from Modernism all the way back to Ancient Rome. The tour lasts two hours, but afterward you’re welcome to keep on exploring. themenevent.com
