Live Loud Now



To mark the 30th Anniversary of the SILENCE=DEATH COLLECTIVE, the Leslie-Lohman Museum of Gay and Lesbian Art will transform the facade of its building into a platform for the collective’s powerful work.

We are big believers in the power of arts and culture to support radical agendas and foster social justice. In recognizing such power, this summer we are launching Queer Power, an annual commission that supports socially committed artists whose work fosters social justice.




This inaugural commission, opening in June 2017, will feature the work of the Silence=Death Collective, adapting the famous poster used by Act Up during the AIDS Pandemic. The collective will reorganize the iconic elements of the poster and contextualize the message with language that addresses the contemporary civil rights issues faced by LGBTQ community.



Join the Leslie-Lohman Museum on June 8th for their Summer Benefit to honor the Silence=Death Collective and support the Museum. Enjoy fun music, delicious beverages and hors d'oeuvres. Featuring DJ Billy Beyond.
