The project "Queer as German Folk" takes the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots as an occasion to examine the current status of the gender diversity discourse on the basis of the history of the queer movement.
It focuses in particular on the German LGBTQIA+ movement generated by the respective civil societies. It is also intended to correct historical perspectives and to question a traditional cis-male narrative.
In Chicago, the exhibition will be shown in three parts and neighborhoods: on the South Side at the Packingtown Museum at The Plant in Back of the Yards, in the Loop at the Goethe-Institut Chicago, and on the North Side at the Leather Archives and Museum in Edgewater.
