Queering the Museum a fantastic display of 40 years of Seattle LGBTQ advocacy

by Shaun Knittel - SGN Associate Editor

The new LGBTQ-themed museum exhibit, 'Revealing Queer,' opens today at the Museum of History and Industry (MOHI). On Wednesday, a few members of the media, MOHAI members, and organizations and people who donated to the exhibit were invited for a special sneak peak of the exhibition. Seattle Gay News was there and I can tell you that the job the Community Advisory Committee and Queering the Museum's chair, Erin Bailey, has done is outstanding. 'Revealing Queer' is a must see!

Over the past year and a half, Bailey who is the curator of the exhibit, has collaborated with the Community Advisory Committee to develop the exhibition that explores the past 40 years of regional LGBTQ histories. The exhibition looks at legal reform, activism, community organizations and exceptional individuals that highlight the breadth of people and events that shape the diverse LGBTQ communities in the region.

'Using a Community Advisory Committee is not a new model. The Wing Luke Museum has mastered the process and tells a multitude of complicated histories in beautifully touching exhibitions,' said Bailey. 'Queering the Museum project adopted the model to create an advisory committee that supported our symposium in 2012, the digital storytelling workshop and the 'Revealing Queer' exhibition.'

This committee supported the exhibition by shaping the content, editing text, connecting us with objects and spreading the word.

'Our committee was dedicated to the process and tirelessly worked on this exhibition over the last year and a half,' said Bailey. 'Without them the exhibition would simply not exist.'

The committee intentionally approached LGBTQ groups in the region to join the committee in October of 2011, finalizing the list in early 2012. The organizations that accepted the offer include API Chaya, Entre Hermanos, Gay City Health Project, Ingersoll Gender Center, Gender Alliance of the South Sound, Lily Divine Productions, Northwest Lesbian and Gay History Museum Project, Oasis Youth Center, Puget Sound -Old Lesbians Organizing for Change, Queer Youth Space, Rainbow Center, Seattle Gay News, Social Outreach Seattle (SOSea) and the University of Washington.

'Revealing Queer' opens today with a bang! Opening Night Celebrations start at 7p.m. and features DJ SassyBlack (Cat of THEESatisfaction), Queer burlesque performed my Lily Divine of Lily Divine Productions and Pidgeon Von Tramp of Pidgeon Coop Productions, Gay bingo hosted by Mama Tits, and will include gallery tours led by Erin Bailey, Nicole Robert, Seattle Gay News publisher George Bakan and Larry Knopp.

Throughout the night Queering the Museum's Digital Storytelling workshop films will be screened.

The Museum of History and Industry (MOHAI) is located at 860 Terry Ave. N. Admission is $12 advance; $15 at the door. For more information, visit www.mohai.org.
