Activist/Artist-led Decolonizing Queer Tours in Mandarin and Cantonese
By combining UK-based LGBTQ+ and feminist attractions with the Chinese language and cultural sensitivity, we would provide different kinds of queer tours .
- Decolonizing Queer Tour at the British Museum
During your two-hour tour at the British Museum, we will introduce you to the stories behind the exhibits in a queer version. After the tour, you will grow a better understanding of ‘decolonization,’ ‘diversity,’ and ‘self-identification when you view the exhibits with a fresh new perspective.
- Women in Art | Feminist tour in the National Gallery
We may wonder why there have been fewer great women artists than male artists and why women have been mostly the “subject matter” in the art field. We will answer your questions during our tour session by introducing you to all the artworks done by female artists and the male gaze, the systematic obstruction to education, patronage, and opportunities to exhibit art.
- Queer Tour at Natural History Museum
“When it comes to sexual promiscuity, Madonna’s got nothing on the average free-loving, masturbation-happy bottlenose dolphin” (BRANDON KEIM)
Through this tour to the Natural History Museum, you will be introduced to the diverse LGBTQ+ community in nature. You will also learn the evolution of female genitalia and how significantly it contributes to the improvement of biology. You will be surprised at the end that though it is against nature to ignore the contribution of female creatures, gender bias is still hidden in the display of Biological specimens.

We firmly believe that one can fully express themselves through art, and we hope this art program can improve the confidence of those from the vulnerable groups.
