Created by our founders to preserve LGBTQ identity and build community, the Leslie-Lohman Museum aspires to reclaim scholarship from a queer perspective, provide a training ground for queer artists and cultural workers to examine the juxtaposition between art and social justice in ways that provoke dialogue and thought, while acting as a cultural hub for LGBTQ individuals and their communities.
The Museum is the only dedicated LGBTQ museum that exhibits and preserves art that speaks about the LGBTQ experience. It has a collection of over 30,000 objects, hosts six major exhibitions annually and several events throughout the year, a quarterly art newsletter, a membership program, and a research library. It began as a foundation in 1987 by Charles W. Leslie and Fritz Lohman, who have supported LGBTQ artists for over 40 years. The Museum embraces the rich creative history of the LGBTQ art community by educating, informing, inspiring, entertaining, and challenging all who enter its doors.
