The National Portrait Gallery opens late on Thursday and Friday evenings for the Late Shift. There’s a bar, a dj playing chilled out tunes and lots of talks and tours, most of which are free. We went on the ‘Queering the Portrait’ tour, which runs each Thursday at 7.30pm from 9th – 23rd February. We were taken round the gallery by a group of academics/art historians who had chosen a selection of portraits that had thought provoking depictions of gender and sexuality.
