This juried exhibition examines personal, private, and public perceptions of the queer self and how these have changed over time. From the 20th Century’s early criminalization of homosexuality; Oscar Wilde’s trial; its medicalization as an Illness; gay liberation; the AIDS epidemic; to the 21st century’s overturning of Bowers versus Hardwick’s Don’t ask don’t tell, and the landmark supreme court decision legalizing same sex marriage.

How Do I Look? Examines these historical shifts in the context of our own queer communal perceptions of self as well as how society continues to view us. How Do I Look asks, important questions at the center of our personal, private and public perceptions of the queer self.

This call is open to all LGBT identified artists working in all mediums with work that addresses personal, private, and public perceptions of the queer self and how these have changed over time. Juried Prizes.
