    Queer people have always flocked to New York City seeking freedom and forging close-knit groups for mutual support and inspiration. Our new exhibition Gay Gotham: Art and Underground Culture in New York brings to life the LGBT artistic communities that sprang up over the last hundred years, a creative class whose radical ideas would greatly influence the definition and evolution of “modern” culture in New York City. To celebrate the exhibition’s opening, join our distinguished speakers for a lively panel discussion exploring the cultural dynamics of gay New York, past, present, and future. This program is the kick-off event for the Gay Gotham exhibition.

    Opening reception and exhibition viewing to follow!
