Aaron Jay Young's photo series "Generations" brings to life the vision behind the building of the Anita May Rosenstein Campus. The Center’s leaders have always imagined a place where the generations — young and old — could gather and learn from one another — a place where community was more than just a word but, rather, a living, breathing, human celebration. Aaron Jay Young's photos perfectly reflect the intentions of the Anita May Rosenstein Campus. The exhibit coincides with the grand opening and more information can be found here.
This series of photographs, taken during the spring and winter of 2019 by noted Los Angeles photographer and artist Aaron Jay Young, capture the humanity and spirit of the people served in the Children, Family and Youth Services and Senior Services departments of The Center. Mr. Young’s portraits bring to life the determination and beauty of his subjects. Taken together, the subjects embody the collective wisdom and strength of the LGBT community and our history of creative resistance to oppression in an effort to build a better world, a world in which LGBT people can be healthy, equal, and complete members of society.
