> DESCRIPTION

The Sexuality Spectrum uses the language of fine art to present, celebrate and mourn individuals whose lives were and are jeopardized by discrimination and prejudice. Fear of the “other” has been a root cause of wars, persecutions, slavery and eradication. In defining sexuality as one of the oppressed categories it is necessary to use correct definitions. All people have sexuality. The rainbow nuances of sexuality are often referred to as LGBTQI: Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, Intersex. Add to that Heterosexual, Pansexual, and re-named variants. Gay is the preferred word for men attracted to men, no longer considered a slur. Queer, once a derogative term that referred to all people who did not behave along heterosexual lines, is now the accepted umbrella term used to refer to all LGBTQI people.
