Queer Talk: Homosexuality in Britten's Britain @ The Red House | England | United Kingdom

This exhibition will mark the 50th anniversary of the decriminalisation of homosexuality. It will focus on Benjamin Britten and his partner, the tenor Peter Pears, at a time when their relationship was illegal. Key works highlighting their relationship will be featured along with the wider cultural, political and legal situation faced by gay men in the 1950s.
