Uncensored: Queer Art and the Church


Yesterday evening was the opening reception for UNCENSORED: Queer Art and the Church Exhibition at the Leslie-Lohman Annex Gallery.

A print of my painting ‘ Damned ‘ was part of this important exhibition denouncing the censorship of Queer Art by the Church. My friend Con Artist who also had a print of one of her pieces up on the walls of this exhibition, can be seen pointing to the image of my piece. Her’s is with the hooded priest and Altar boy. The exhibition runs till April 1, 2012.

Uncensored: Queer Art and the Church is an activist riposte to the shameful history of censorship against LGBTQ art and artists by both the Catholic Church and Fundamentalist Protestant Churches. The Leslie-Lohman Museum of Gay and Lesbian Art firmly believes that all art should be seen and displayed without regard to content; therefore submissions to Uncensored: Queer Art and the Church were not curated, edited, interpreted or censored.

    Thank you for doing this. Why should anyone think a man in a dress is a suitable guide on anything to do with sex? (Note: this is not an anti-trans comment!)

      Hello Clare, no I totally hear what you’re saying in reference to pedophile priests.
