    Today is #QueerMuseum Day! To celebrate, a few of our LGBTQ+ staff would like to share their favourite artworks with you in our Instagram Stories. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Meet Lara from the marketing team. One of her favourite artworks is Keith Vaughan’s ‘Drawing of two men kissing’. [image 1] ‘I love the simplicity of this piece. It captures the intimacy, the longing behind a kiss which surpasses gender and sexuality. Vaughan’s work is just a few lines on a page but stands for so much more. It inspires me to express my opposition to gender and sexuality being binary through my own work.' [image 2 is Lara's artwork] - Lara [pictured in image 3]
