The Leslie-Lohman Museum of Gay and Lesbian Art brings a new perspective to art, providing viewers with insight into artists as individuals. The venue demonstrates that LGBTQ art exists not in a vacuum, but is an integral part of the art world. The museum has a mission to exhibit and preserve LGBTQ art, and support the artists who create it. It embraces the rich creative history of the LGBTQ community by informing, inspiring, entertaining and, when the art warrants it, challenging all who enter its doors. Children under 18 must be accompanied by an adult when visiting the museum.
