which will form part of the next Queer History Project community-based initiative.
the eleven days of the Festival (August 12-22, 2010), the
Queer History Project will have a mobile portrait

portraits to celebrate and document the history of festival-goers chosen families
in whatever form they might take.
The portraits will be unveiled at a special
Queer History Celebration in July 2011 as part of a larger community public
