Description:

The Lavender Line: Coming Out in Queens Exhibit illuminates the grassroots activism and ethnic diversity that are hallmarks of the Queens LGBTQ movement. Composed of photographs, flyers, video footage, and audio recollections, the exhibition illustrates the pride and protests of a community unknown to many New Yorkers. The title of the exhibit celebrates lavender not only as a symbol of the original gay liberation movement but also as the color of the line painted on the inaugural Queens Pride Parade route along 37th Avenue, from 89th Street to 75th Street.
