Join us in Tate Exchange as we explore identity through the lens of LGBTQ+ youth in Liverpool

Discover how young people from GYRO have responded to our Keith Haring exhibition through interactive workshops they took part in with artist Jake Ryan.

The work presented in Tate Exchange explores the various ways that young LGBTQ+ people express themselves. The young people wanted to share that their LGBTQ+ identities are very important to them and that they do not exist in isolation from the rest of their identity.

Visitors to Tate Exchange will be encouraged to explore their own identities through a series of activities. Be as fantastical or straight to the point as you like to create an alter you!


GYRO- LGBTQ+ Youth is a combination of LGBTQ+ group support and 1:1 support for young people aged 12-25 years old in Liverpool. It has existed in many forms since 1976 and is the longest running LGBTQ+ youth provision in the UK.
