To See and Be Seen: T-shirts from the Canadian Lesbian and Gay Archives

Presented on the occasion of WorldPride 2014 in Toronto, To See and Be Seen features t-shirts from the Canadian Lesbian and Gay Archives (CLGA) from the 1970s onwards, representing the fight for visibility and recognition of lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and queer (LGBTQ) communities. These t-shirts, from organizations such as ACT UP, Queer Nation and local LGBTQ Pride events, demonstrate a range of messages from expressions of identity, political and social struggles, to the celebration of community, love and pride.

Guest curated by Professor Joseph Medaglia from Ryerson’s School of Fashion, this exhibition is produced in collaboration with the CLGA,  the Ryerson University Library and Archives (RULA) and is supported by the Textile Museum of Canada and the School of Fashion.
