The first LGBTQ art museum in the world was born from the collection of Charles W. Leslie and Fritz Lohman, pioneers who started collecting and exhibiting this genre in 1969. Along the way, the acquired genuine masterworks by such big names as David Hockney, Keith Haring and Jean Cocteau. Much of the art by less well-known artists is as accomplished, and its all accompanied by wall text that gives real insight into the lives of the artists and the issues they were illuminating. Note: Some of the material is highly erotic, which may make some viewers uncomfortable.
