The Lesbian Avengers: 25th Anniversary Exhibition, March 31—June 4, 2017

 
The Lesbian Avengers: 25th Anniversary Exhibition was on view at the Bureau of General Services—Queer Division from March 31 through June 4, 2017.
 
We did it, and we’ll do it again! A multimedia activist exhibit celebrating the Lesbian Avengers, formed 25 years ago during another surge of hardcore misogyny, and anti-gay, white Nationalist hate. Includes still photos, flyers, posters, slide shows, and video. Were you there? We welcome your participation. This mobile exhibit won’t take on its final form until late April. In June, it will begin to pop up all over the country. Including a neighborhood near you!

Also exhibited, images of powerful women fighting AIDS worldwide from the new feature film, Nothing Without Us, by Harriet Hirshorn and Mary Patierno. From New York to Nigeria. Burundi to the American South.
