Heart of Art Gallery
is one of the most radical galleries in Los Angeles, USA. The founders Kenia and Bell say, “Being women and queer we have gone through struggles and rejection in the art community so we wanted to change that and provide a safe platform. We only show case the works made by women, trans and queer artist. We are open for public for everyone to enjoy no matter what gender they are as long as they are respectful of others.”

Pride is a photo exhibition portraying gay history and the democratic struggle for gay rights from 1972 to the present. It is a part of the exhibition For the Love of Freedom at the Museum of Cultural History in Oslo, Norway. Pride present a chronological caleidoscope of the political efforts, street demonstrations, parties and gatherings that were carried out by the gay communities and other supporters of gay rights. This material has been compiled from the archives of Leif Pareli of The Norwegian Museum of Cultural History, the gay publication Blikk and The National Archives of Norway.
