Although LBGQT2 stands for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, Queer/Questioning and 2-Spirited, the plus (+) that is usually included after the initialism encompasses a list of other identities that fall under the queer umbrella. Our group art exhibition features 17 local artists ranging in age from 12 to 65+, working in various media, focusing on the ‘+’ itself, as it indicates a range or ‘gradient’, representing the fluid spectrum of human gender and sexuality.
This is where the ‘+’ in LGBTQ+ comes in: we are asking artists to produce new work that addresses their interpretation of the ‘+’ or range/ gradient within the LGBTQ community. Click here for some ideas on this.
What does it mean to you and how is it constructed? Check out this useful guide.
SEXUALITY (+ beyond)?
Roles as defined psychologically and physically over time, can shift and vary from person to person.
