Earlier this month the Leslie-Lohman Museum of Gay and Lesbian Art opened their latest exhibit, The 1970s: The Blossoming of a Queer Enlightenment.
If you have plans to visit New York City in the coming weeks or months you may want to stop by the museum at 26 Wooster Street in New York City to check out the exhibit, which opened on April 8th and runs through June 26th.
The exhibit explores the vibrant and liberating decade between the Stonewall Riots from 1969 through 1980, just before we heard the first rumblings of the AIDS crisis. The exhibition features over 115 works, including photographs, drawings and paintings made during this significant period in LGBTQ history.
The exhibit explores themes of political activism, body/self, fashion/style, and sexual freedom/expression.
