LIVING IN LIMBO LESBIAN FAMILIES IN THE DEEP SOUTHPhotographs by Carolyn Sherer
Living in Limbo: Lesbian Families in the Deep South, photographs by Carolyn Sherer is a contemporary exhibition honoring the current complexities of lesbian family life in the South. The exhibition provides an intimate view of a population that has been largely invisible or underrepresented in public art. The images challenge viewers to envision a world without prejudice and discrimination— a world that celebrates commitment, family and inclusion for everyone—a world without limbo.
Living in Limbo was a resounding success at the Birmingham Civil Rights Institute (BCRI) in Birmingham, Alabama, attracting nearly 17,000 visitors from across the country during the ten-week run in the spring of 2012. The BCRI will now manage travel of the exhibition.
