When I tell you that all this studying is making me reconsider my past, present and future, it’s reality, not hyperbole. Believe me. Maybe send someone.

At least I made time to wash (and part) my hair.

In honor of Pride Week, we are featuring works from our collection by LGBTQ+ artists whose creative practices reference this identity and/or experience. 

This work by Kehinde Wiley, who you may remember from last year’s A New Republic, is part of ‘Black Light,’ a series of 17 photographs. It is based on British painter Joshua Reynolds’ 1763 portrait of Susanna Gale, daughter of a British sugar planter in Jamaica. In Wiley’s rendering, a contemporary black man takes her place, unsettling categories of race, sexuality, gender, and privilege.
