DESCRIPTION

Now accredited as the first dedicated LGBTQ art museum in the world, the Leslie-Lohman Museum of Gay and Lesbian Art began as the Leslie/Lohman Gay Art Foundation founded by Charles W. Leslie and Fritz Lohman, and for more than 20 years has supported gay and lesbian artists.

Our mission is to exhibit, preserve and foster the creation of LGBTQ art and artists which speaks directly to a gay and lesbian experience, including erotic, political, romantic and social imagery. We embrace this rich creative history by informing, inspiring, entertaining and challenging all who enter our doors.
