“Bright Lights, Queer City”


That’s the name of the LGBT nightlife-related art exhibit at Leslie/Lohman Gallery — which is part of the Fresh Fruit Festival — the kickoff of which I co-hosted on Wednesday night as thousands cheered.

In the above Miguel Dominguez shot, you’ll see me with the show’s curators, Lovari and Lady Clover Honey, plus artist Tracy Von Becker and photog Andrew Werner.

And in the other photos, there’s yet more art, both framed and living, proving once again that we’re here, we’re artistic, and we’re used to it!

And here are some photos by Laura Cadorette.

And some from Jed Ryan.
