GLBT Historical Society

"Chosen Familias" examines queer Latinx stories by documenting real-time, real-life Latinx relationships. By appropriating and queering the concept of the traditional family photo album, the exhibition reframes documentation of queer mothers, daughters, fathers, children, aunts and uncles. The exhibition showcases the ways that queer Latinx people have forged personal and community bonds.

This is what SF/Arts curator Christian L. Frock has to say about CHOSEN FAMILIAS: LGBTQ LATINX STORIES :

This group exhibition considers the lives and stories of four decades of Bay Area LGBTQ Latinx activists and artists, their families, and the chosen families that developed out of strong bonds and kinship within the queer Latinx community. Museum visitors are encouraged to reconsider their own definitions of family in ways that honor and empower queer forms of connection.
