“LGBTQ+” is an acronym used to refer to the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, questioning, other gender identities and sexually diverse groups, including intersex and asexual individuals. The year 2022 will mark the second LGBTQ+ exhibition. Through shared experiences, members of the RVA community continue to learn and grow, and bring awareness to the LGBTQ+ experience. The goals of the exhibition are to stimulate conversation, educate the RVA community on the topic of LGBTQ+ life in RVA, and provide an occasion for LGBTQ+ individuals and Allies to share their perspectives.

*Artwork must be “ready to hang”/exhibit prior to installation dates chosen by the gallery.

**Artists are responsible for shipment or delivery of their artwork to the gallery.
