This exhibition explores the interaction between LGBTQ+ identities and their history. To be visibly LGBTQ+ and to showcase LGBTQ+ identities and their stories is inherently political. The way these individuals live their lives is considered a public matter, while they are also marginalized in law and society. The artists featured in this exhibition document their own stories as LGBTQ+ individuals, creating histories that may otherwise be ignored or erased. These intimate representations of LGBTQ+ experiences, both of the artists and of others, subvert traditional expectations for white, cisgendered, and heterosexual lives. These artists not only fill a void in the art world, but also continue the fight against stigma, oppression, and marginalization. Further, these artists show that LGBTQ+ histories are not only ones of struggle and oppression, but of love, resilience, and joy.

Regular Hours:

  • Monday - Friday 12:00 pm to 4:00 pm*
  • Closed Saturday and Sunday
  • Closed University Holiday and Academic Breaks
