Prepare to pore over sexual and gender politics this weekend as the Tate’s tanks play host to ‘Charming for the Revolution’, a two day series of art, activism and discussion to mark the start of LGBT month. A screening of films by Boudry/Lorenz kicks off proceedings on Friday by delving into the murkily gendered underground of the punk scene. The highlight of the second day looks set to be the UK premiere of ‘Wildness’ by Wu Tsang, a video portrait of a downtown LA bar, filled with all sorts of wonderful creatures of the night. Other events include music, performances and a day symposium led by Colombian artist Carlos Motta. Eddy Frankel
