Uncover the lost lives of the queer dispossessed

Using the decriminalisation of male homosexuality as a starting point, performance artist Bird la Bird probes the annals of queer history. Through archival documents and stories about Millbank Prison, the site where Tate Britain now stands, she uncovers lost lives of the queer dispossessed.
