The uniting visual theme of this art exhibition is the broccoli, which our team has embraced as a symbol of queer joy and frivolity during this difficult time for our rainbow communities. With transphobia and online hate speech continuing to rise, we wanted to create a space of joy and silliness that gave a platform to rainbow artists of all generations and backgrounds.

The broccoli emblem alludes to a common story that suggests Sappho, a Greek poet famous for her love poems to women, wrote about gifting broccoli to women she was attracted to. Whilst there is no definitive proof of broccoli being used in this way, the story highlights the ambiguity and erasure of queer histories. Our exhibition is designed to encourage rainbow communities to look into the past and connect with our queer ancestors.
