As part of resident organisation Thorne Harbour Health‘s 40th anniversary, ‘If the World Was Just’ is a photographic exhibition exploring LGBTIQ+ human rights around the world through a series of portraits of local LGBTIQ+ community members.
In this portraiture exhibition, personal narratives intertwine with the global struggle for LGBTIQ+ rights. Drawing from Thorne Harbour’s 2016/17 annual report, the photo series has been revisited to consider the contemporary consequences of LGBTIQ+ people living in various countries around the world.
The exhibition and accompanying forum on Wednesday 19 July will examine Australia’s role in global LGBTIQ+ rights by drawing on the experience of asylum seekers and refugees, and the settlement process here in Australia.
On display in the Pride Gallery until September 11
