June is Pride Month. Let me be more clear, it is Harlem Pride Month and that’s when there are an array of special events dedicated to the LGBT community. One event opened this past weekend hosted by the Casa Frela Gallery called Living in Color, a unique exhibition and performance installation celebrating both Harlem Pride and the pride of LGBT artists of color throughout New York City.

Living in Color features an exhibition of photography, acrylic paintings, ink drawings, mixed-media, water colors, collages and even a toy theater. The exhibit opened on June 11 and will run daily from noon to 4 p.m. through June 30.

General viewing of the exhibit is free. On June 18, the performances are ticketed. It is $15 general admission and $20 for artists wishing to illustrate female and male live models during a two-hour drawing session. Check for updates on the Casa Frela Gallery website.

A portion of the proceeds from the performances and from the sale of the exhibited art will be donated to charities that support educational opportunities for communities of color and/or provide therapeutic support for LGBT youth of color.
