For the Love of Us All is a Queer art exhibit that explores community, love, pride and diversity.

The exhibit is overseen by a team of four community curators.

A central theme of the exhibit is exploring intersectionality within the Queer community. Intersectionality is a concept that recognizes that social factors such as ethnicity, socio-economic status, class, gender, sexual orientation, age and ability overlap and create amplified experiences of marginalization.

Within the exhibit, the curatorial team will create space, place and belonging for those with interconnected identities.
