First Comes Love
September 17 – October 22, 2016
Opening Reception, Saturday, September 17, 3-5PM
First Comes Love is an exhibit of photographs, stories, and video by B. Proud that provides a glimpse into the “everyday” lives of LGBTQ couples who have been in their relationships for 10, 20, 30, 40 and even 50 years! Unlike the stereotypical picture painted by the media, these portraits and stories seek to educate those who question, celebrate those who have loving, devoted relationships and provide an historical record of the strength of this community.
