This two-part program explores classicism in relation to the history of LGBTQ communities.
Taking as its jumping-off point three nineteenth-century photographs of suggestively posed young men amid Roman ruins, Part I (May 4) takes place at the Smart Museum and explores the use of photography in secretly creating LGBTQ communities. Part II (May 11) features a tour of the Leather Archives & Museum—which preserves the history and culture of fetish, kink, and leather communities in Chicago—and a discussion of the history and future of Chicago’s active LGBTQ community.
