QUEER is a multi-venue event opening June 8, 2018 at various locations. Throughout the month of June, Pride Month, a new and unique exhibition is being presented at the Ace/121 Gallery.
QUEER is an endeavor to not only look at the evolution of a word and a culture, but to do so in what will be Glendale’s first ever LGBTQ-based art exhibit and Gay Pride Event. This program is dispersered throughout Glendale, as it is in conjunction with Abril Book/Roslin Art Gallery and Gauchose Village. QUEER is being presented at the following venues:
121 N. Kenwood St, Glendale, CA 91206
On June 28 from 7:30 – 9:00 pm, ace/121 and Homo-Centric will present an evening of readings revolving around the paragraphs that examine the evolution of a word and how LGBTQ and non-LGBTQ alike identify with it today.
“A word becomes a slur becomes a culture. For some Queer remains too painful to embrace. For others, it’s a culture that extends beyond the LGBT community, allowing for broader inclusiveness. In LGBT normative Century 21, what is Queer anymore? “
This was an open call invitation to submit one piece, one paragraph: What makes you QUEER?
Abril Books/Roslin Art Gallery
415 E Broadway, Glendale, CA 91205
GALAS (Gay and Lesbian Armenian Society), Abril Books, and Roslin Art Gallery are presenting QUEER in both gallery work and a month of programming.
“Experiences of queernes and otherness have been shared by the Armenian and LGBTQIA+ community. Both have been targeted and oppressed throughout history in different contexts. In a diverse city such ad Los Angeles, the experience of being queer or other is constantly evolving. This is a call to all artists of Armenian backgrounds, whether or not you identify as LGBTQIA+, to submit artwork that expresses your experience of queerness or otherness. “
Additionally, Abril Books has about half a dozen related events programmed for the month of June.
