Two Groundbreaking Exhibits Presenting the Faces and Voices of Same-Sex Newlyweds
THE PHOTOGRAPHER'S EYE
For the first time ever in this country's history beginning February 12, 2004, thousands of same-sex couples were married before a worldwide audience. The Queer Cultural Center (Qcc) and Bay Area Community of Women (BACW), in conjunction with The San Francisco LGBT Community Center and over twenty allied community organizations from across the country, present a photography exhibition, Spouses for Life - A Wedding Album. By presenting the human faces and voices of these newlyweds, the exhibit will convey the universality of love and commitment and further public understanding and acceptance.
