LGBT Programming At The Myseum Intersections festival - Raymond Helkio - MyGayToronto
LGBT Programming At The Myseum Intersections festival 03 March 2018.
The third annual Myseum Intersections festival explores intersectional perspectives of Toronto through collaborative exhibitions, events, workshops, and tours. This year's theme, "Arrivals & Departures," explores Toronto's many communities, cultures, and characters, and highlights how different perspectives converge to create multiple visions of our city's past, present and future.
Queer highlights include:
Jeanne B '93: A Gendertroublemaker Arrives
Gender oppression, sex work and animal welfare intersect in surprising and affecting ways in this exhibition focused on transsexual artist/activist Mirha-Soleil Ross. From the C anadian Lesbian and Gay Archives (CLGA), DIY LOVE, The 519.
Now and Then
Now and Then is a video art commissioning and presentation project developed by the RT Collective in collaboration with the CLGA and the Gladstone Hotel. A team of ten artists will create new video pieces in response to specific items they find in the archives.
Escondidos No More!
This exhibit traces the history of the coming out of the Latinx LGBTQ community in Toronto. The exhibit features photos, posters and other cultural artifacts that represent the events, activities, organizations and people who spearheaded these movements. From Escondidos No More!, The 519, CLGA, Grupo Gay Latino HOLA, Latinos Positivos Toronto.
The Journey, Not the Arrival, Matters
Just when did Toronto turn queer? Did it just happen at one historical moment or is there a story there or, better yet, stories? Using Oscar Wilde's visit to Toronto in 1882 as a starting point, this storytelling event provides multidimensional points of view and gazes on Toronto's queer histories. From Jeffrey Canton Productions, CLGA, Dora Keogh Irish Pub, Spadina Museum, University College, University of Toronto.
