Along with lots of other events celebrating NYC Pride this month, the Leslie Lohman Gay Art Foundation in Soho presents The 2010 Great LGBTQ Photo Show. Showcasing the work of over 80 photographers from around the world including Lola Flash, Jess T. Dugan, Katie Koti, Molly Landreth, Greg Mitchell, Grace Moon, Eric Rhein, Robert Siegelman, and Lars Stephan, the show features a variety of photographic styles - portrait, narrative, stylized, erotic, documentary, and photo-journalistic. Some themes the artists focus on include "Don't Ask, Don't Tell," same sex marriage, love, gender reassignment, sexual identity, sexuality, and more. As the press release states, "The 2010 Great LGBTQ Photo Show provides viewers with a broad survey of what contemporary queer photographers are working on today." See some of my favorite selections below. Learn more at Leslielohman.org. Through July 10th. Happy Pride!
