Frida Kahlo: Queer Icon
Frida Kahlo is responsible for some of the most arresting images of the 20th century. Her paintings are so iconic that the queerness of them is often overlooked, but Frida's bisexuality and gender-fluid identity is present in some of her most famous images. Yet Frida's paintings are not just queer because of what she put in them. The way she exhibits her life and identity in her paintings, as a person who faced extraordinary adversity, creates a huge resonance with a queer audience—and this talks explores this closely. Through looking at some of her most famous paintings with a queer perspective, we shall discover what it is that has made Frida become one of the world's greatest queer icons.
