Full of the best stories in LGBTQ art history (and a little wine), Museum Hack’s “Big Gay Met” bachelor and bachelorette party tours are a fun and fabulous elevated alternative to the traditional prenuptial strip club jaunt.
Museum Hack specializes in creating museum tours for people who don’t like museums. A huge part of that lies in sharing the secret insider stories behind the paintings and sculptures people walk past every day at museums.
The Big Gay Bachelor and Bachelorette parties dive into LGBTQ history in the Metropolitan Museum of Art – gay men, lesbian women, genderfuck, drag queens, bisexuals and more.
The tours are all about people approaching their personal passions in the museum space and bringing them to life through storytelling. The tour guides curate all of the content on their tours, personally exploring and researching all the fun, subversive, juicy anecdotes the museum has to offer.
When Museum Hack tour guides Ethan Angelica and Lily Manshel set out to research the content used in the Big Gay Bachelor and Bachelorette parties, they knew they wanted to find the stories that were the best fit for them in an effort to bring a little more of who they are outside of the museum, into the museum.
Ethan and Lily wanted to be sure these tours weren’t just for gay men, but that they included a little of everything. They split the research and raced around the museum, building the tour from the ground up by showing each other their findings and practicing their pieces until they felt they were ready for their first trial run — which was a success!
There are other tours that cover queer history of the Met and their content can be a little cerebral. There aren’t a lot of people digging into who was sleeping with who. These tours cover factual, solid content in our tours, too – but that content is infused with sexy, scandalous stories and camp culture. It’s a museum tour for the RuPaul’s Drag Race demographic!
