High Visibility, a group exhibition featuring over fifteen Atlanta LGBTQIA+ photographers, puts Queer Southern Photographers at the Forefront.

The launch of the virtual exhibition will coincide with Atlanta Pride’s 50th Anniversary, a time of celebration and remembrance for the Queer artists and outcasts who came before us. Because of COVID-19, all of the celebrations will be virtual this year. Despite the setbacks, Southern Queers remain determined and resilient -- putting our artists on display a month before one of the most important elections of our lifetime.

Curatorial Team:
Le’Andra LeSeur
