Queering the Catalogue: A Look at Queer, Gay, and Trans Art and Artists
Pin on No place like Harlem Baby!
If you have not met Kevin, put it on your to-do list because he is always warm and welcoming, and is such an incredible person to talk to. Working at the Greater Baltimore Cultural Alliance, right across the street from Nancy by SNAC, I knew I needed to eat there at some point, so a few weeks ago I got lunch there with my partner -which was delicious- and I was taken aback by the explosion of color, art, and life covering every inch of the walls. When I returned to interview Kevin not only did he remember me from my one visit, but he also remembered exactly where my partner and I were sitting! During our chat, we talked about everything from the Station North Arts District, to our opinions on cats I like them, he does not , to his personal artistic influences. I think I could meet with Kevin every day and he would still have something new and interesting to talk about. Over lunch, Kevin told me about his fascinating journey getting to where he is now. He was born and raised in West Baltimore and moved to Station North about 25 years ago.
Every year, Black History Month recognizes the accomplishments, journeys, and contributions of African Americans throughout history. Throughout the month of February, GLAAD will be sharing graphics that honor black LGBT icons--including advocates, authors, entertainers, thinkers, and those who have done some of everything--and their insights. By posting these graphics on your social media, you can pay tribute to these admirable figures by reminding you and your followers to constantly strive to live into the icons' messages and to make their visions for the world become reality. Janet Mock rose to success as an editor for People. Janet combines her roles as author and advocate to inspire dialogue and reach out to the LGBT community.
