Civil Disobedience: Celebrating Queer Narratives
April 2nd - June 29th

Opening reception: April 2nd, 6:00 – 8:00pm

Open Hours: 8am–10pm
International House, East Alcove Gallery
3701 Chestnut St.

An art exhibition, juried by Warren Muller, of artwork by Philadelphia artists which celebrates the history of queer/LGBTQ+ resilience and protest — art that celebrates a community which is unafraid to speak its mind.

Coinciding with the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots, this summer, Lightbox Film Center will feature a series of films featuring this pivotal moment in the struggle for LGBTQ civil rights. Just as American history has been broadly shaped by the politics of dissent, affecting everything from our labor laws to foreign policy, protest has continued to shape LGBTQ acceptance and liberation. Along with resistance and protest, the LGBTQ rights movement is also characterized by pride: enduring celebration of identity and love that empowers marginalized and antagonized communities to create change.
