On Reagan and Gorbachev Avenue, next to the International Homomonument, the Pride Photo Exhibition in The Hague will be on display from Tuesday, October. The queer photo exhibition shows on 29 large panels a selection from the more than 2.500 images submitted from 29 countries.
The photos address various urgent topics, such as loneliness among older queer people, violence against transgender people, queer refugee issues and Black Lives Matter. At the same time, the exhibition also confronts visitors with their own prejudices and assumptions.
Themes are named in short texts on the panels. Anyone who needs more information can scan a QR code, which can be used to call up additional information about the photographer, the work and the subject. Some panels also have an audio clip to listen to.
I am very proud that the Pride Photo exhibition can be seen in The Hague. Due to the international character of Pride Photo, the exhibition fits in our international and diverse city, says Alderman Arjen Kapteijns (Emancipation). pandemic and the resulting safety measures, it was chosen to keep the exhibition in public space and therefore still be visible. The exhibition will remain on display until November.
