WeHo presents: The Sacred and The Profane

The City of West Hollywood, once again sponsoring its exciting and vibrant annual One City, One Pride arts festival highlighting the artistic contributions of the LGBT community, has this year a theme: “The Sacred and The Profane.”
This theme explores the dichotomies of the LGBT experience: how the community views itself in contrast to how it is seen from the outside, a blending of the spiritual and the carnal, of things holy and wicked, and of things granted and taken away.
Held throughout late May and June, but centered around the dates of Friday, May 31, 2013 through Sunday, June 16, 2013, the festival comprises both free and ticketed events featuring theater, film, music, spoken word, visual art, parades and more.
June is recognized worldwide by the LGBT community as Pride Month, commemorated on the anniversary of the Stonewall Rebellion in New York City on June 28, 1969, which most historians consider to be the birth of the modern LGBT civil rights movement.
Here’s an overview of events set to take place during this year’s One City, One Pride festival:
· Friday, April 19, 2013 through Wednesday, July 10, 2013: “Living in Limbo, Lesbian Families in the Deep South.” This was the first full exhibition about the LGBT community to be shown at the Birmingham Civil Rights Institute in Alabama. Fifty years ago the struggle for civil rights in Alabama directly led to JFK’s submittal of the Civil Rights Bill to Congress in June 1963. West Hollywood is proud to host this exhibit organized by the Birmingham Civil Rights Institute, whose mission is to promote civil and human rights worldwide through education.
This exhibit of both bold but intimate portraits by photographer Carolyn Sherer will be on display from Friday, April 19, 2013 through Wednesday, July 10, 2013. An artist reception, talk and tour are planned for Friday, May 31, 2013 and Saturday, June 1, 2013. Admission is free. West Hollywood Library, 625 N. San Vicente Boulevard. For more information, please go to www.livinginlimbo.org.
· Saturday, May 18, 2013: “Stolen and Forbidden.” This special pre-festival preview explores this year’s festival theme “The Sacred and The Profane.” Before the Internet, young gay men looking for answers would often read in secret, or pilfer books and magazines out of shame. In this special event, famous gay men will read from texts that were stolen or forbidden in their youth. West Hollywood City Council Chambers, 625 N. San Vicente Boulevard.

· Friday, May 31, 2013: “8 the Play” by Dustin Lance Black. This staged reading of “8” based on the Perry v.
