Queer British Art. In London's Tate Gallery, next week, there will be an unusual exhibition dedicated to social prejudices in the past. The exhibition has a certain time frame. One of them - the year 1861 - the date of the abolition of the death penalty for sodomy, and the other - in 1967 - the partial decriminalization of homosexuality. Amazing paintings will tell the guests about prejudices and the shadow of illegality of same-sex love.
