ROM Friday Night Live, Toronto's most unique social destination, will be back April 29 to celebrate #ROMInk. Join us for a night of drinks, food, and live music - all while dancing among our fossils and rubbing elbows with history.
In one of Toronto’s largest cemeteries, we will stroll through a beautiful landscape and enjoy the stories of people who were influential in the growth of Toronto during the Victorian era. We will explore symbols of that time on the monuments and mausoleums.
Join internationally renowned scholar Joshua Mostow as he explores the roles of gender, sexuality and erotic art in Japanese culture, from the Edo period and beyond.
Four hundred years ago in Japan, male youths, called wakashu, were the objects of sexual desire for women and men.
Join world traveller and leading anthropologist Dr. Lars Krutak, The Tattoo Hunter, as he shares his ongoing journey to understand how tattoos and other forms of body modification "make" the people who wear them.
Presented in partnership with Northern Ink Xposure.

While strolling along Queens Quay, learn about the evolution of Toronto’s waterfront from its industrial and commercial origins. This tour will explore history, art and architecture as well as the recent, transformative revitalization of this area of the City.
