Cooper was the art critic for the original Gay News and his ground-breaking books on aspects of queer art and culture – including the pioneering The Sexual Perspective – examined issues around sexuality and the visual arts that pre-date the Tate Gallery’s recent Queer Art in Britain show by some thirty years. \n  \n£4 Members\, £7 Non-Members\nFREE for 18’s and under \nBook Tickets Now \n URL: LOCATION:Royal Cornwall Museum\, River Street\, Truro\, TR12SJ\, United Kingdom CATEGORIES:Evening Talks END:VEVENT END:VCALENDAR
