Museum Website

With a mission to exhibit and preserve art that speaks directly to the many aspects of the LGBTQ experience, and to foster the artists who create it, the Leslie-Lohman Museum is the only dedicated art museum in the world to exhibit and preserve artwork from a queer perspective, and to examine the juxtaposition between art and social justice in ways that provoke thought and dialogue.

Accredited as a museum in 2016, with a collection of over 30,000 objects, the Museum hosts six major exhibitions annually, offers several public programs throughout the year, publishes an arts newsletter, and maintains a research library of over 3,000 volumes.
