Love Makes a Family Art Exhibit - Part of PSU Pride Week!
Thursday, May 20, 2010 - 9:00am to Sunday, June 6, 2010 - 5:00pm

WHAT: Love Makes a Family Art Exhibit - Part of PSU Pride Week! Love Makes a Family is a museum-quality traveling exhibit including photographs and interviews with families that have lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) members. Through first-person accounts and positive images, this exhibit seeks to challenge and change damaging myths and stereotypes about LGBT people and their families. At the most basic level, Love Makes A Family combats homophobia by breaking silence and making the invisible visible. By encouraging people of all ages - beginning in early childhood - to affirm and appreciate diversity, this traveling rental exhibit contributes to the process of dismantling the destructive power of prejudice and intolerance, thereby making the world a safer place for all families.

Designed for audiences of all ages, Love Makes a Family challenges stereotypes about LGBT people and helps dismantle homophobia. The photo-text rental exhibit consists of ready-to-hang framed photographs and text. The companion book, Love Makes a Family (published by the University of Massachusetts Press) was named the Best Book about Gay and Lesbian Issues by the Association of Independent Publishers.
