A spokesman said: “The Queer Beach project explores the strong connection between queer people and culture and the seaside – between a fringe, sometimes marginal community, and this frontier space. It cruises to nearby places such as Brighton naturist beach and sails to faraway places such as Abrico queer beach near Rio, featuring painting, collage, photography and film by 30 artists who were invited by SEAS or answered their open call.
