Soho Photo Gallery will be holding a very special exhibition to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots and the start of the gay liberation movement. The exhibited work will demonstrate how the uprising made possible a type of imagery that earlier generations had to suppress.
Photography After Stonewall highlights the work of twenty-three living artists, all of whom have developed a creative approach to LGBTQ issues. The themes include Body/Gender/Sexuality, Home, Family, Gays in the Military, AIDS, Fetish, Pulp and Fantasy. Fifty years ago, much of this would have been unthinkable. Among its many accomplishments, the Stonewall Riots opened up a new area for artistic expression. Events are being held around the nation to commemorate this important milestone. This exhibition focuses entirely on creative photography.
