About The Event
In coordination of the 50th anniversary of Stonewall and World Pride, we invite you to our June show "Amor es Amor: Celebrating the LGBTQ community within Chicanisma/o"
In a first-of-its-kind exhibition, CHAC is celebrating the LGBTQ within Chicanisma/o. At a time when many messages are focused on what separates us, Amor es Amor is a bold step in sharing what we have in common.
Without ignoring historical friction between the two communities, the exhibition acknowledges the many similar experiences endured by Chicana/o and LGBTQ people. Defined by a history where oppression and violence led to a lack of visibility, both celebrate their strength in community, self-reliance, and family; and capacity for love through vibrant visual art, writing, music and dance.
Everyone of all identifications are welcome!
