July’s Uniqlo Tate Lates (28/07/2017)

The last Tate Late was about multiculturalism and how diverse the population is across London.

I didn’t manage to capture the rest of the exhibition mainly due to me wanting to absorbs the information rather than taking pictures of it…

Plus we also spent way too long relaxing a room showcasing a porn video made by feminists while arguing where to eat for dinner.

~I never knew a drag act making a cheese sandwich would be soo funny~
