Celebrate the launch of the 2017 Pride in London festival at Tate Britain

To celebrate the powerful role of the LGBTQ+ community in arts and culture, Queer and Now invites people of all ages and identities to join in a host of live performances, talks, music, film and dance from artists rooted in the UK's queer community.

Explore our landmark exhibition Queer British Art, 1861–1967 through music and lip syncing with artist Paul Maheke and musician Cédric Fauq, learn to vogue with Jay Jay Revlon, dance to DJ sets from Sink the Pink and DJ Ritu and enjoy a special selection of rarely seen films and documentaries from the BFI national archive. Plus, hear from a host of LGBTQ+ speakers, drop in to fun family-friendly activities for all ages, browse craft stalls from Etsy and Bar Wotever’s Queer Fayre, enjoy delicious local food, music, dancing and more.

Open to all

Tate is committed to the creation of an open and welcoming environment for everyone. Members of Tate staff will be acting as designated Vibe Checkers throughout the ‘Queer & Now’ festival to ensure that all visitors are able to fully participate and enjoy their experience. If you overhear any exclusionary language or behaviour, come across a situation that makes you feel uncomfortable, or need to find a quiet, time-out space, Tate’s Vibe Checkers will be on hand to assist and respond.

Tate Britain is equipped with all-gender bathroom facilities.
