Event Description

The exhibition “Publicly Identified: Coming Out Activist in the Queen City” will be displayed at The University of Alabama Gallery and The Arts Council Gallery at the DWCAC March 8-April 14, 2017. This historical exhibition of Charlotte, North Carolina’s queer history was created by UA alumnus Josh Burford while at the University of North Carolina in Charlotte, where he is the assistant director for sexual and gender diversity. In 2016, it was one of two exhibits to win the Allan Bérubé Prize, which recognizes outstanding work in public or community-based lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or queer history. To put the exhibit in historical context, UA’s Department of American Studies will also be hosting a lecture in the Black Box Theatre at the Dinah Washington Cultural Arts Center on March 7 at 5:30 p.m.
