Event description

Description

A new exhibition at the GLBT Historical Society Museum displays photography, ephemera and text to center both biological and chosen Latinx LGBTQ family connections as structures that build hope and resilience. By queering the concept of the traditional family photo album, the exhibition reframes historical documentation of mothers, daughters, fathers, children, aunts and uncles.

“Chosen Familias” will feature several displays of family photo albums, while a video station will play interviews with and footage of Bay Area LGBTQ Latinx activists and artists of the past four decades. Curated by Tina Valentin Aguirre, chair of the society’s board of directors, the exhibition expands the definition of LGBTQ family to encompass not just biological relatives, but also mentors, coalition members and the networks of people that have supported us.

Light refreshments will be served.
