Family Matters:
LGBTQ Youth Perspectives

Family Matters: LGBTQ Youth Perspectives, photographs by Carolyn Sherer highlights LGBTQ youth in the Deep South and the challenges and triumphs they face in society with and without the support of their families.  The exhibition was initially hosted by the Birmingham Civil Rights Institute in the spring of 2014 and then displayed at BAO's Magic City Acceptance Center.  It now travels to locations in North America and is currently on display at the Jewish Community Center in Birmingham, AL.  This project is made possible in part by a grant from the Alabama Humanities Foundation, the state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities.  For more information about Family Matters please contact Amanda Keller, at BAO.
