Valentine's Day Weekend Tours of New York's Met by Prof. Lear
Professor Andrew Lear of Oscar Wilde Tours, who gives the "Gay Secrets" tour of the Boston Museum of Fine Arts for the HGSC which has sold out repeatedly (6 times!) this winter, would like to offer HGSC members a discount on his erotica-themed tours of New York's Metropolitan Museum on Valentine's Day weekend.
There are three different tours: a "Gay Secrets" tour on Saturday February 13 at 2 pm, covering the Met's surprisingly extensive LGBT-themed collection, from Greek vases to Picasso's Gertrude Stein; a tour called "Shady Ladies" on Sunday February 14 at 2 pm, covering the courtesans, royal mistresses, and other scandalous women in the Met, from Greek hetaeras to Sargent's Mme. X; and a "Sexy Secrets" tour on Friday February 12 at 6 pm that combines elements of both tours, plus a fun bit or two of its own. These tours are a press favorite; see for instance: http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2015/03/05/inside-the-met-s-secret-gay-art-collection.html?via=mobile&source=email
