The west coast stop of Queer Media Database Canada-Québec Project’s touring exhibition series, marking the 50th anniversary of the 1969 Omnibus which legalized same-sex sexual activities. In partnership with VIVO and the Vancouver Queer Film Festival, and located at SUM Gallery.
The Wide Open, curated by Lacie Kanerahtahsóhon Burning, continues from media art in community centres throughout Vancouver through their Trans, Gender Diverse, and Two-Spirit Inclusion team to the big screen. This media project puts LGBTQ2S+ narratives fearlessly out in the open with a focus on intersectionality.
