Queer the Streets participated in an unauthorized group exhibition of art here in Melbourne. For the show several street artists banded together to create a “gallery” space in a popular graffiti filled alley. All work was given away for free. When we announced the location people were seen running to the location. She show was a big success, and was well covered on several art media.

The idea behind Queer the Streets is to normalize queer aesthetics, through art. One of my favorite photos is shown above of a person carrying home a nude painting of trans woman (Chelsea Poe). They later posted a photo of it displayed in their living room. Everyone who visits their house will see this imagery. I love that!
