Leslie-Lohman Museum accredited by the State of New York

The Leslie-Lohman Museum of Gay and Lesbian Art in Soho, New York has been accredited as an official museum by the State of New York.

They say that makes them the first and only museum of gay and lesbian art in the world, although other LGBT museums include art exhibitions.

The museum focuses on art that tackles issues of gender and sexuality within the context of how the artists’ sexuality has influenced their work.
