Tonight (3 July), the second UNIQLO Tate Lates Night In will be celebrating LGBTQI culture while the galleries are still closed. Tate Modern’s popular monthly event will be Brough direct to viewers at home, offering two digital streams of content so that viewers can curate their own evening. 

To mark the end of Pride Month, this event will bring together a vibrant mix of talks, workshops, film, music, poetry and meditation centred around LGBTQI people, visual activism and self-care. 

Hosted by Dan Vo, a leading figure in the world of LGBTQI museum tours, UNIQLO Tate Lates Night In will be able to view on the Tate website from 7-9pm BST and will remain online for a week.

UNIQLO Tate Lates occur at Tate Modern on the last Friday of every month and have left their mark on London’s cultural scene by offering a free and accessible creative hub for people to come together, socialise and exchange ideas. Over the past three and a half years, these events have been dedicated to showcasing local emerging talent, alongside well-known DJs and world-famous artists. UNIQLO Tate Lates Night In is part of Tate’s commitment to continue to inspire and connect people across the world and to support and platform local emerging artists alongside collection artists during lockdown.
