Next week, a special exhibit will open at the South Union Building in Southborough (a.k.a. the Arts Center/Recreation Building). The photo exhibit “Voices Carry” is by resident Chelsea Bradway of All Things Sparkly.
The event hosted by Southborough Safe Spaces is clearly timed for Pride Month. Photos “celebrate the beauty and strength of our LGBTQ+ community.”
The Early Bird window for tickets to the Gallery Opening, ends today (though ticket sales will continue).
On Facebook, organizers promote:
We need our participating youth to see more adults and families they identify without in the world. Show some love and come on over to this beautifully curated gallery event. You won’t want to miss this!
The public is encouraged to “Welcome Summer with Flair” on Wednesday, June 22nd, 6:00 – 9:00 pm at 21 Highland Street. Tickets can be purchased at a discount today (June 16th) for $15. The regular price is $20. Refreshments are included.
The registration page details:
Southborough Safe Spaces is an LGBTQ+ youth supporting interfaith group in Southborough. We are a self-funded group providing a safe, welcoming environment for LGBTQ+ youth of all backgrounds to be accepted and embraced at every step of their journey. Our hope in presenting this project to the community is for our participating youth to see more adults and families they identify with out in the world.
Together Chelsea Bradway and Southborough Safe Spaces have photographed many incredible LGBTQ+ humans to create this empowering photoshoot. Ticket sales help us ensure the group’s ability to support LGBTQ+ youth through facilitated group discussions, Art Nights, Movie nights, and guest speakers. Proceeds of this gallery show will help provide Southborough Safe Spaces with funds to continue to provide a loving, accepting environment so all can flourish.
The sale of gallery prints will be allowed after the gallery show is taken down.
Let us support ALL humans and provide a safe, fun, and creative environment where everyone can be THEMSELVES!
