Join leading LGBT and human rights activist Peter Tatchell for a tour of Tate Britain’s collection displays, unearthing hidden stories of LGBT subjects and artists. Who were they and how were they represented? How might we imagine their lives and experiences? What clues to the existence of LGBT individuals, communities and societies can be found in the works? What work has been done uncovering this knowledge? What do these images tell us about the development of the rights we enjoy today?Peter Tatchell has campaigned for LGBT and other human rights since 1967. He was voted sixth in the 2006 New Statesman readers’ poll, "Heroes of our Time" and in 2009 won Campaigner of the Year at the Observer Ethical Awards. He is Director of the Peter Tatchell Foundation and human rights spokesperson for the Green Party.
