Celebrating Pride

MoMA staff consider the impact LGBTQ+ individuals have had on history via works from the collection.
Cortney Cleveland June 7, 2018

New York is the birthplace of Pride, created in 1970 just one year after the Stonewall Riots in Greenwich Village. For over three days, the LGBTQ+ community resisted police discrimination outside the Stonewall Inn, jumpstarting the modern gay rights movement. In celebration of Pride Month 2018, MoMA staff members join people around the world in commemorating the impact LGBTQ+ individuals have had on history by selecting works from MoMA’s collection to share. The artists presented here, offering an array of perspectives on queer identity, have left an indelible mark on the culture of our time.
