Queer British Art 1861-1967 at the Tate Britain celebrates the 50th anniversary of the decriminalization of homosexuality. It strives to spur conversation on the fluidity of gender and sexuality of famous artists and their subjects in a time where such talk wasn’t socially acceptable. The show spans from 1861, when the sentence for sodomy was decreased in the U.K. from death to life in jail, to 1967, when sex between two consenting males was legalized.
