T-shirts from the Canadian Lesbian and Gay Archives

Textile Museum of Canada: To See & Be Seen: T-shirts from the Canadian Lesbian and Gay Archives - Presented at the Textile Museum of Canada on the occasion of WorldPride 2014 Toronto, To See & Be Seen features t-shirts from the Canadian Lesbian and Gay Archives from the 1970s onwards that represent the fight for visibility and recognition of lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and queer (LGBTQ) communities. These t-shirts, from organizations such as ACT UP, Queer Nation and local LGBTQ Pride events, demonstrate a range of messages from expressions of identity, political and social struggles, to the celebration of community, love and pride. Guest curated by Joseph Medaglia, this exhibition is produced in collaboration with the Canadian Lesbian and Gay Archives and the Ryerson University Library and Archives with the support of the Textile Museum of Canada and the School of Fashion, Ryerson University.
