Queering the Whitworth: Pride Weekend Tour


Queering the Whitworth: Pride Weekend Tours

Saturday 24 August 11am
Sunday 25 August 2pm
Free, no need to book

To celebrate Manchester Pride Month, we will be continuing our Queering the Whitworth series of LGBTQ+ tours. Uncovering hidden or ignored queer histories of a range of artworks on display within our Pearl Alcock, Cézanne at the Whitworth and Exchanges exhibitions. These tours will help us tell these stories and give a new and fresh perspective to some of the gallery’s best loved artists.

These hour-long tours form part of our wider project #Queeringthewhitworth, which aims to highlight LGBTQ+ connections associated with the Whitworth’s art collection.
