Selected works from Georgia Equality’s Living With art exhibit will be on display at the annual Bayard Rustin/Audre Lorde Breakfast on Monday January 16, 2017 at the Loudermilk Center. The Living With exhibit, which debuted on World AIDS Day (December 1), uses multi-sensory art installations to tell the stories of young people living with HIV in Metro Atlanta. “We are thrilled at this chance to share the artists’ work with Rustin/Lorde Breakfast attendees and truly honored to work with the organizers to center the voices of people living with HIV during the program,” says exhibit organizer Emily Brown.
For 16 years, the annual Rustin/Lorde breakfast has honored the legacies of Black LGBTQ activists in Metro Atlanta. This year’s theme is Relevance. The organizers challenged themselves to assess the relevance of their work, words and actions to the needs of the community. To this end, they invited artists who “inspire positive change and illuminate paths toward liberation” to share their work with attendees as part of the breakfast programming. This event is free and open to the public.
