What you'll learn in this museum class:

The Metropolitan Museum of Art is one of the greatest museums on the planet. It is filled with the history of societies present and past, packed with millions of objects that date back over 6000 years, brimming with beauty, inspiration and intellectual stimulation. It’s also super gay.  

Come join us for a whirlwind romp through the sometimes strange, sometimes secret, always awesome queer history hiding in plain sight at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. We’ve collected the greatest stories of the greatest bits of LGBTQ art history available at the Met, spanning from ancient times to modern day. 

On this 2 hour Museum Hack tour, you should expect to: 
Celebrate the crazy backstories of the best queer artists whose objects grace the Met See some art you already love… and then discover how gay it is Compete to find your Met Life Partner (and win an actual prize) Check out some hidden representations of gay sex hiding within the Met’s walls Pick up some 18th century dating tips to spice up your next night out Find out why dogs and horses are important to queer representation Toast our fabulousness with a glass of wine! You should NOT expect: 
Straight bashing Cuddle piles (the guards get mad) Biphobia Note: Please keep in mind that the Museum Hack Big Gay Met tour contains strong language, adult content, and wine, which may not be appropriate for younger children. Your discretion is advised.

Reviewed by Alan A. on 2/14/2016
This was a great chance to see the Gay Treasures of the Met, to which I hadn't really paid much attention in the past. I now have a much deeper understanding of the works and the artists, as well as the times in which these works were produced. A perfect example of this is Jasper Johns' "White Flag"; I did not know that this was a backlash against the way that society treated gays in the 1950s. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone, gay or straight.
