Don't Look Away: Outright Window Takeover at SPACE

Join us for our SPACE Gallery Window Takeover for Pride: June 9-16th!

Don't Look Away honors the legacy of LGBTQ+ youth organizing by highlighting historic examples of direct action artwork, combined with pieces by Outright members who use arts-based community organizing to connect with each other across systems while working towards justice and liberation. From Stonewall to ACT UP, from the streets of Portland to the backrooms of Long Creek Youth Development Center, queer and trans young people on the frontlines of struggle, have always been the heart of Pride. We are building the world we know is possible—one moment of care, one act of resistance, one installation at a time.

The 2018 Outright Prom is an event celebrating LGBTQ+ and GNC youth in Maine. Every year adult allies (folks ages 25+) make this event possible by volunteering to "chaperone" the evening. Chaperones help maintain a safe and fun atmosphere from the coat check, to the photo-booth, to the dance floor. All 2018 Prom Chaperones must attend this training to volunteer. For info about the prom or chaperoning contact portlandoutright@gmail.com.
