loved the exhibit, and loved the article...but had the same nagging questions for both. would it have killed you to include more about the ladies?
I saw the exhibit in Brooklyn, and I have to say I was crying before the end of it. I'm just not used to being allowed to wander so openly through my heritage. Is it important to be gay? Resoundingly: Yes.
Genevieve: It was something that nagged me, too, and you are absolutely right. I had limited space and was frustrated by the same thing. I wasn't sure how to address not addressing it, if that makes sense. Thank you for posting here and holding me, and all of us, to it.

Also: It is something Jeffry, Joey, and I talked about as well. I didn't want you to think they were unaware or uncaring. Not at all.
There's a chance to learn more about the ladies of HIDE/SEEK! Co-curator Dr. Jonathan D. Katz will be speaking about the women of HIDE/SEEK on May 10 at 6:30 pm at Tacoma Art Museum. For tickets visit
