Queer Forms coincides with the anniversary of these important historical markers in the history of LGBTQ+ Liberation: the 50th anniversary of the establishment of FREE (Fight Repression of Erotic Expression), a Gay student organization at the University of Minnesota, and the Stonewall Rebellion in New York in 1969; and the 60th anniversary of the resistance to police harassment of LGBTQ+ people at Cooper’s Donuts in Los Angeles in 1959. Exhibition runs September 10 - December 7, 2019. More info at z.umn.edu/nash.
