Explore untold narratives of California's LGBTQ+ communities in OMCA’s powerful new exhibition Queer California: Untold Stories. Go beyond the mainstream with stories focusing on transgender communities, people of color, women, and others who have often been left out of this history. Queer California: Untold Stories will deepen and expand our understanding of this history through art, video, music, and more. Experience powerful examples of social activism through contemporary artwork and historical materials and view rarely-seen artifacts, archival documents, photographs, costumes, and ephemera such as zines, stickers, and flyers. The exhibition aligns important milestones in LGBTQ+ culture with lesser-known stories, focusing on a diversity of queer identities, civil rights, and resistance to oppression.

Share your own personal experiences and moments in a participatory gallery display that reflects the range of California’s queer history and the places that those outside of the norm may have found that they fit in. Queer California presents a future of possibility; through themes of memory, mourning, anger, desire, and hope, this exhibition draws on histories of struggle for self-determination to help us imagine a more inclusive future.

There is a $5 charge for this special exhibition in addition to regular Museum admission.

OMCA includes representations of queer bodies and material with sexual content in this exhibition in order to affirm the ways in which they have been central to the experience of LGBTQ+ individuals and communities.

The exhibition will end on Sunday, August 11. Click here for more information discounted tickets for students.

The Fruitvale Short Film Series is a public screening event for and by Bay Area filmmakers. The purpose of this film series is to highlight and showcase local student and independent filmmakers in celebration of diversity, inclusion, and representation in media.
The series aims to provide programming relevant to people of color both behind and in-front of the camera and will be hosted at the Eastside Arts Alliance and Cultural Center sitting on the border of Oakland's Lower San Antonio and Upper Fruitvale neighborhoods. The program incorporates all forms of content and genres that tell powerful and moving stories in short form.
All audience member donation proceeds from the event will go towards covering the costs of the screening with any excess given to funding student filmmakers. No person will be turned away for lack of funds.
Doors open at 6:30pm
