Family Matters: LGBTQ Youth Perspectives
Exhibition Opening 

Don't miss the opening of this powerful exhibition that is a component of the Common Read / Common World Initiative encouraging the USA community to share in reading Cradle of Freedom: Alabama and the Movement that Changed America by writer-in-residence Frye Gaillard which tells the story the African American civil rights odyssey in Alabama. 
Through the photographs by Carolyn Sherer and narratives of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) youth from Alabama, the exhibition seeks to engage the visitor in another reality of civil rights, that of equality regardless of sexual orientation and gender identity. 

Frye Gaillard will be introducing the exhibition and the modern folk band Mouths of Babes will provide musical accompaniment.
This exhibition was developed by Birmingham Aids Outreach and made possible in part by a grant from the Alabama Humanities Foundation, the state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
Exhibit on view until July 22, 2016.
