Celebrating Queer Joy

Our mission is to inspire a more conscious and inclusive world through the power of photography, twelve months a year. But June offers a special moment to celebrate expressions of pride with a calendar of events that centers our LGBTQ+ community of creatives and underscores inclusivity, self-expression, perseverance, and joy.


This year we’ve teamed up with consultant, event producer and promoter Terence Edgerson (NYSocialbee) to put together an unforgettable lineup of events celebrating queer joy. Edgerson has built his reputation as an instrumental part of the LGBTQ+ community and nightlife scene in New York City over the last 10 years, promoting and producing some of the city’s most notable parties including Horse Meat Disco, Linda, Heaven on Earth, and Carry Nation at Good Room as well as launching his own party series Stuntsz and The List is Closed at Le Bain.


Amidst a sharp rise in anti-LGBTQ legislation in the US, Pride is a time to reflect on the progress made as well as the work that remains to be done. The Flowers Series highlights the individuals in NYSocialbee’s vast network who exemplify queer joy and foster community. In black culture, the concept of honoring others for their accomplishments is referred to as “giving someone their flowers” and this series aims to do just that.

Stars–A major Terry O’Neill retrospective—is the late artist’s largest-ever U.S. exhibition and first New York museum solo show. From electrifying editorial portraiture to rare and intimate ‘off-duty’ photos that show the human side of fame, this exhibition features the faces that defined 50 years of global pop culture–many of which were revolutionary icons for LGBTQ+ communities, including Elton John, David Bowie, Tina Turner, and many more.

Listen Until You Hear is a six-artist, multi-media exhibition of intersectional identity explorations including trans survivalism. The exhibition explores themes ranging from freedom, family, love, pain, survival, and the future. Each artist’s distinct visual language and use of representation highlights the connections between meaning and value; historical and cultural storytelling; and our capacity to listen and hear what is at once physical, psychological, emotional, and spiritual.

Accompanying the exhibition’s artworks  is a “Banned Book Reading Room,” on our 6th floor loft, including titles perceived as “radical” and “dangerous” by legislators, when they simply speak to the everyday experiences of LGBTQ+ individuals and people of color.
