In creating this exhibit, the word Pride was used as a base for inspiration and interpretation. It was designed to be taken literally, conceptually or theoretically. We chose strong, personal work that addresses the issues being discussed today, as well as projects that frame the historical struggles of the LGBTQ+ community and its increasing acceptance into the ever changing mainstream.
This dynamic group of visual artists mostly come from the New York City area, but also from across the country, as well as from Argentina, Taiwan, Cuba, Spain, Venezuela and India.
It is a true representation of the diversity we strive for in our Queens community, and to a wider, more altruistic extent, in our country.
