BEarMUSMENT Exhibition Opening June 3rd | SF CA @ Magnet

by Accidental Bear

The BEarMUSEMENT art exhibition foregrounds ideas about what images are considered “beautiful” in LGBTQ culture and forwards an aesthetic vision of Bears and Chubs.

Exhibition artist Noel Ibay works in styles including graphite, electronic mediums, photo-realistic renderings, stylized iconic images, and pop-culture parodies.

Opening night, Friday June 3, the artist will unveil an HIV/STD prevention poster created by him for Magnet to use for Bear/Chub community outreach. This is highly significant, since this segment of the LGBTQ community is often ignored, not only in gay media but also is underserved in queer health outreach such as HIV/AIDS information.

The following Tuesday, June 7, a panel discussion addresses challenges and triumphs of the large-sized queer community. It will feature fat activist Marilyn Wann and Dan Taylor, editor/publisher of The Big Times. This free exhibit is co-presented by Magnet, Army of Lovers and QCC’s Healthy Communities Initiative Grant. Visit
