Queer Feminist Art in Europe

Edited by Birthe Havmoeller

Dear Reader,

With LGBT communities around the world celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall riots this year, there will be lots of queer art exhibitions in the USA and Canada this summer commemorating this landmark event, which changed the course of history for LGBT people. In this article below, however, Anna McNay and I are focusing on where to see works of art by lesbian, bisexual and queer feminist artists in Europe during the summer of 2019.
