About Living in Limbo
Living in Limbo (LIL) is a contemporary photography exhibit that honors the complexities of lesbian family life while revealing authentic moments shared by family members living in the Deep South. LIL focuses solely on lesbian families, a population that largely has been invisible and underrepresented in public arts. The exhibit’s powerful images and accompanying words challenge viewers to open their eyes, minds and hearts to lesbian families, and envision a world without prejudice and discrimination – a world that celebrates commitment, family and inclusion for everyone – a world without limbo. The exhibition previewed at the Birmingham Civil Rights Institute during Spring 2012, attracting nearly 17,000 visitors during a ten week run. Living in Limbo will now travel to other museums and galleries nationwide under the management of the Birmingham Civil Rights Institute.
