'Lesbians to Watch Out For: 90's L.A. Activism' Opening Reception and Exhibit

Exhibit/Visual Art
Friday, June 2, 7:00pm
Long Hall at Plummer Park
7377 Santa Monica Blvd

This year marks the 24th anniversary of the National Dyke March in Washington DC and the 25th anniversary of the founding of the Lesbian Avengers.  These two events inspired national activist efforts and a legacy of Dyke Marches across the country. From protest and street activism to grassroots community groups, '90s activism in LA and WeHo reflected the energy of the decade. This exhibit  tells the stories of LA queer women from groups like ACT UP LA, Queer Nation LA, Dyke March LA, the United Lesbians of African Heritage (ULOAH), Los Angeles Asian Pacific Islander Sisters (LAAPIS), Lesbianas Unidas (LU) and other organizations. It also features 'The Lesbian Avengers: 25th Anniversary' traveling exhibition. 

The exhibit is open Fridays through Sundays from June 2nd to June 30th. (Except June 9 - 11 when the exhibit is closed.)

The exhibit schedule is as follows:

  • Friday, June 2nd: 7pm - 9pm (Opening Reception)
  • Fridays in June: 6pm - 9:30pm (CLOSED FRIDAY, JUNE 9)
