A lecture detailing contributions to fine art by some notable and lesser-known gay, lesbian and transgender people. This will also cover changing themes in queer art from pre-legalisation, through the culture wars of 20th century and up to the present. Finishing with a long view of the issues surrounding the definitions of “queer” and its application in the arts. Part of University of Leicester LGBT+ History Month.
