Arts Preview: Heroes among us

Black, Out & Proud is here with a gallery exhibition and fashion show that celebrate queer stories, perspectives and creativity.

“There hasn’t always been the opportunity for LGBTQ artists to share, let alone people of color,” show curator Charles Smith said. “This show is about supporting other perspectives and identities not represented in the broader community, the queer art scene and also the black community. Instead of waiting for someone to do it, [Black, Out & Proud] decided we would foster that environment and create it.”
