The Hellenic Museum would like to invite you to our upcoming event ‘Greek Love’, in celebration of Pride Month this June.
The recollection of Greco-Roman myths and histories have been popular mediums through which same-sex relationships, gender exploration and human diversity has been portrayed. Join the Hellenic Museum for a night of uncovering the queer-coded histories and mythologies of antiquity. Greek Love will inform and entertain, as well as challenge how we, as a modern audience, interpret the past and how it relates to contemporary LGBTQIA+ representations.
The night will entail a cocktail on arrival, entry to the museum’s exhibitions, and a series of illuminating presentations by the Hellenic Museum team, followed by canapés and informal discussion.
