February is LGBT History Month: a chance to reflect on some of the great lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender artists and art inspired by the LGBT community

In our selection you’ll find a mixture of friends, lovers, fantasies and formal portraits from the last 150 years, revealing the radical changes in LGBT experience over time. Not all the artists were gay or bisexual, but all of these artworks have something to tell us about queer lives and desires.

Find more works like these in Tate’s Collection.
