A Place at the Table: A Gathering of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Text, Image, and Voice

Exhibit – Multimedia | April 5 – July 9, 2012 every Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday & Friday with exceptions | 10 a.m.-4 p.m. | Bancroft Library, Gallery at Cal , Berkeley.

You have been invited to a grand party. Gertrude Stein and Alice B. Toklas are your hosts. Gathered in one room there are over 150 years of Americans who embody a rainbow of diversity, but have one thing in common–a non-normative sexual orientation. Here are the old and the young of many races and ethnicities. In text, image, and voice these Americans have taken their unique and often difficult life experiences and have transmuted them into beautiful and fierce art. With Walt Whitman, they sing the body electric. Welcome to their coming out party.
