For this exhibit Galleries at LynnArts (GALA) is seeking submissions based on the symbolism of the colors included in the LGBTQ+ Pride Flag. The original LGBTQ+ Pride Flag was created by artist Gilbert Baker and made its debut on June 25th, 1978. Since its debut, the original flag has changed and been updated to represent the intersectional diversity of the LGBTQ+ community.
Prismatic, a new zine produced by the queer community in Lynn, MA. will also launch its first ever issue during the artists reception. The first issue of Prismatic is dedicated to trans rights and the struggle to ensure trans children are given the care and support they need in order to be themselves. Prismatic is an ongoing project directed by Olivia Werth partially funded by the LynnSpire grant. Future issues will be open for submission by members of the LBTQ+ Lynn community. Come to the Artists Reception and get a free copy of the first issue.
