In the Galleries: Queers In Exile


"Queers In Exile, the Unforgotten Legacies of LGBTQ Homeless Youth" focuses on "chosen family," redefining house and home, organizing and political actions, and resistance.

Queersexile_1aMeet the LGBT street-involved youth from the Stonewall Riots of 1969 to present day. A new exhibit inspired by transgender activist Sylvia Rivera's essay Queens in Exile, the Forgotten Ones, shows the long-hidden crisis of queer youth homelessness. But it also highlights the powerful ways these young people help each other survive.

The exhibit at the Leslie Lohman Museum of Gay and Lesbian Art includes work from artists such as Samantha Box, Leonard Fink, Andy Warhol, and The Ballroom Archive and Oral History Project. The exhibit was curated by Alexis Heller.

"Queers in Exile: the Unforgotten Legacies of LGBTQ Homeless Youth" is on exhibit until July 28. Visit for a full schedule of other events that are part of the All Out Arts Fresh Fruit Festival. For more information, call (212) 431-2609 or go to
