Boston Pride - Pride Arts

In 2016, Boston Pride inaugurated its Pride Arts program, a series of events that focus on queer-related art and culture. In particular, Pride Arts ventures to showcase LGBTQ artists, authors, and creators in the greater Boston area, and to connect our larger community with arts and culture, in all of its forms and expressions.

Here is the 2019 Pride Arts program, as of 6/6/2019

Childs Gallery: Pride Brunch And Celebration Of The Exhibition
Saturday, June 8, 2019
11am – 2pm
Don Joint: Narcissus
May 30 – August 18, 2019

In western theory, the myth of Narcissus, a beautiful youth who falls in love with his own reflection, carries overt tones of homoeroticism as an essentially queer narrative in which a man experiences same sex attraction. In this exhibition, multimedia artist Don Joint explores the sensual gaze central to the Narcissus myth through his various series of works including collages, bottles, dinnerware, and other found ephemera. On display are nubile young men brashly arranged yet unaware they are the object of desiring eyes, serving as the reflection to the audience’s lustful Narcissus.

The exhibition is held to commemorate the fiftieth anniversary of the Stonewall riots and will take place during Pride Month. A selection of artwork by other LGBTQ artists including Paul Cadmus, George Platt Lynes, Emily Lombardo, and more will also be on display.
