A revolutionary exploration of the deep queer past which may change the way you think about LGBTI history forever. This box set worth of true stories squashed into a show bursts with information, insight, laughter and emotion.

Beginning in the vast prison which once stood on the site of Tate Britain, Bird lovingly traces the lives of queer prisoners spanning through centuries and across the British Empire. It decolonises LGBTI history by taking an inclusive, irreverent approach to the past.
