Welcome back to Jo’s Art History Podcast
Today we are celebrating the art of pride by taking a whistle-stop tour of 5 works that celebrate the LGBTQ+ community.
Starting as a blog post back in 2020, I received a lot of attention from this blog and decided to turn it into an Instagram series. I learnt so much that it seemed a shame to leave it hidden in the depths of my Instagram / blog so I decided to turn it into a podcast episode! I hope you like it.
Today I’ll be discussing the original pride flag, the first public monument to the LGBT+ community and how a Hackney street artist raised thousands of pounds in aid of celebrating Pride!
