This year's theme for UAL's annual LGBTQIA+ History Month exhibition is 'Visible'. The Student Union aimed to empower and provide a safe platform for the voices of queer students at UAL. I submitted my poem visible, which explores themes of sexuality and hidden identities.
See the exhibition at Central Saint Martin's Window Galleries, open to the public 24 hours a day.

"Art allows for self-expression. We can escape through art, be immersed in it. Our practices communicate our voices in unique ways. Our art can act as a safe space for us, it may protect us, challenge us, help us answer difficult questions in our lives. As LGBTQIA+ artists our art deserves to be seen, heard, digested and celebrated.
What does this celebration of self and practice look like at UAL? This exhibition space for LGBTQIA+ History Month displays student artwork with their peers and recognises the unique importance of themselves and their practice."
