This February National Portrait Gallery are celebrating LGBTQ+ History Month

They have partnered up with a number of organisations and individuals to celebrate some of the incredible LGBTQ+ sitters in their Collection.

From a special series of films with National Youth Theatre members inspired by three sitters in the Collection, to a blog with artist Sassicism. National Portrait Gallery’s Youth Forum delve into the Gallery’s Collection to explore the LGBTQ+ sitters that particularly inspire them. From artists to activists, discover the incredible portraits that they’ve selected, and the connections that they have found within the works.

National Portrait Gallery has plenty of content and activities to share with you this month. Make sure to check out their LGBTQ+ History Month webpage and what else they have in store here.
