In England..

every February is lgbtq* history month, and for the whole of its existence I have curated an outstilation in the five London main public institutions, the National Gallery, the British Museum, the Victoria and Albert, Tate, and the British Library to see how they are managing.

And the results aren't good.

I'm beginning to prepare for next year, but we have a different starting point, for the Barbican is curating an exhibition called Seduced with a catalogue for less than thirty pounds which shows how contested all the categories are.

John Addington Symonds is the starting point for the Barbican case.
