A visual dialogue with LGBTQ+ changemakers

Pride Publics: Words and Actions is a multisite exhibition organized by ONE Archives Foundation and curated by Rubén Esparza. With 28 large-scale posters installed as wheatpaste in a public site, this exhibition stages a visual dialogue between historical and contemporary changemakers.

The exhibition examines themes central to LGBTQ + public life and highlights trailblazers and their visions. And it chronicles moments of multi-generational progress and community actions that contribute to the wellbeing and advancement of queer and trans life in the public realm.
