OPEN TO THE PUBLIC | "Queer Kids" by M. Sharkey (Michael Sharkey '95) is a solo exhibition of works produced over the past decade documenting gay youth in the United States and abroad. Sharkey’s photographs are intimate testaments to his subjects’ powerful self-awareness; at once empathetic and opulent, they are the visual counterpart to the voice these young people have struggled—and lately succeeded—to find.

The project is a celebration of the recent developments within the Gay Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer (LGBTQ) community that allow today’s youth the opportunity and support to find their own voice and speak openly about their sexuality.

Opening Reception: Friday, September 15, 5:30-7:30 pm Gallery Talk: Saturday, September 16, 10 am Lamont Gallery Phillips Exeter Academy 20 Main Street Exeter, NH 03833-2460 See gallery website for visiting hours and more details.
