• PRIDE Photo Exhibit In Times Square (June 10-20)

    The show hopes to illuminate the needs of LGBTQ youth in foster care

    By Anastasia Capatina

    YGB_Family_CMYKA new photography exhibit opens at the Times Square Museum & Visitor Center on June 10th in celebration of Gay Pride Month. The exhibit is designed to raise awareness of the disproportionately high number of LGBTQ youth in foster care by featuring larger-than-life portraits of LGBTQ and other children currently in the foster care system. In the recent, year-long National Heart Gallery Exhibit, nearly half of all the children featured in the photographs were successfully adopted by loving families. This summer’s show hopes to illuminate the needs of LGBTQ youth in foster care, as well as capture the hearts of prospective parents with the moving photographs taken by well-renowned photographers (including Martin Schoeller, Amy Arbus, and Gabrielle Revere, among others).

    The PRIDE exhibit is brought to the city by the partnership of the Heart Gallery NYC and You Gotta Believe. The Heart Gallery NYC is a non-profit organization that creates similar art projects around the city in order to help foster children find their “forever families.” You Gotta Believe is the only group in the city that works exclusively in aiding teens, preteens, and young adults find stable, loving home environments. Their PRIDE exhibit embodies the shared message of these organizations–it is never too late to find a family.

    On June 9th, the exhibit will launch with a private evening reception, which will connect prospective parents with adoptive agency representatives. The reception will also host the photographers of the project and include a performance by “Book of Mormon” actor, Tommar Wilson. The photo exhibit will run from June 10th-20th.
