Our Projects
Drawing Back The Curtain: Exhibits on LGBT Irish History
 

The exhibits of Irish lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender materials is an expanded version of the original exhibit produced by Brendan Fay and curated with artist Peter Hendrick. The exhibit was installed in the window of McNulty's Tea & Coffee Co., Inc. at 109 Christopher Street during the Stonewall '25 celebrations in June of 1994 and seen at the International Symposium held at St. John's University, "The Irish in Queens: 150 Years of Struggle and Success."

 

Billed as "an invitation to look into the faces and lives of a people who've remained but a footnote in the chronicles of Irish history", the exhibit recognizes individuals who personally, or as part of a movement, have chosen to raise their voices over the centuries of silence. The exhibit includes photographs and materials from the work and lives of present day leaders, honorees of the annual Oiche Aerach dinner.
