Pride First Friday:
Expanding the Queer Perspective
In celebration of Pride Month, The Common Room is working with Planned Parenthood of Southeastern Pennsylvania to present a month-long exhibit that seeks to expand the queer perspective through art media.
 
Showcasing a body of work by local LGBTQ+ artists, the show seeks to promote a broader understanding of what it means to be queer, and the unique perspective offered by viewing the world through a queer lens. In an effort to engage the community in open discussions about queer culture and history.
 
The Common Room will be offering workshops and discussions throughout the entire month of June focused on building awareness, combating inequality and discrimination, and amplifying the voices of the queer community.
