Weekends is proud to present the exhibition “Liberté, Égalité, Fraternité”, on the lushness or lack of freedom, equality and kinship in the scope of gay and lesbian identities.
The national motto of France, the titular triad of the exhibition, describes the right rights and ideal ideals, but begs the question: “for whom?”.
Are faggots free, dykes equal and everyone empathised with?
