What it took to create the world’s first gay art museum

Smithsonian Magazine has an interesting article, “What it Took to Create the World’s First Gay Art Museum” that I would encourage anyone who finds this sort of thing interesting to read.  For the rest of you, take note of this museum when you next visit NYC if you’ve never been before.

Nestled in SoHo is the world’s first gay art museum, The Leslie + Lohman Museum of Gay and Lesbian Art.  In the past I’ve written about their exhibits, but this time I’m writing about news that the museum will soon double in size. The expansion of more than 3,000 square feet will allow the museum to host multiple exhibits at the same time.

Be proud of the contributions made by the LGBT community and in particular of their art which pushes the boundaries of sexuality.  You can visit The Leslie + Lohman Museum of Gay and Lesbian Art in SoHo at 26 Wooster Street, NYC.
