It Gets Better: LGBTQ 2012

May 10, 2012



The fourth annual juried It Gets Better: The LGBTQ Community at Union College exhibition includes artwork by Julia Anthony, Nguyen Thi Thu Trang, and Frank Rapant. The format of this year’s exhibition includes an invitation for the viewer to participate by sharing their reflections of the work by these three artists. Also on display is a timeline of selected LGBTQ events that have helped to raise awareness and acceptance within our community. The timeline includes: the Taking Pride in Our Community Walk, a lecture by Joshua Bastian Cole, the student led How to Talk to a Gay Person discussion, Iris House, the Drag Ball, and the Day of Silence.

In connection with the exhibition, Schaffer Library is hosting a web page to highlight suggested titles of articles, films, and books in order to inspire further research about LGBTQ issues. To suggest additional titles, contact
