Colors of Pride by Chris Diani

When: Wednesday, June 29, 2022
9:00 AM - 6:00 PM
Where: > See description for location
Description: Colors of Pride is a series of vibrant photographic portraits of members of New England's LGBTQIA+ community, shot by UMass Dartmouth photography student Chris Diani and presented in Gallery 244 at Star Store Campus. The series aims to celebrate the diversity within the LGBTQIA+ community. It was inspired by the recently introduced "More Color, More Pride" flag that added black and brown stripes to the traditional Pride flag to establish a commitment to diversity and reject white supremacy within the queer community. Co-sponsored by UMass Dartmouth's Center for Women, Gender, & Sexuality, the exhibition's opening reception is planned for AHA! Night on Thursday, June 9th from 5-6 pm.

Chris Diani is a filmmaker and photographer based in Providence, Rhode Island. His first feature film, the award-winning gay zombie comedy Creatures from the Pink Lagoon, screened in over 30 cities worldwide and was released on DVD in 2007. A graduate of Seattle Film Institute's Full Immersion Program, he received an Associate of Fine Arts degree from Community College of Rhode Island in 2021 and is currently pursuing a BFA in Photography at UMass Dartmouth.

The galleries at Star Store Campus are open Monday through Saturday 9 am to 6 pm, Sundays 9 am to 5.30 pm, free of charge. Closed on Independence Day. Open until 9 pm during AHA! Nights (the second Thursday of every month). UMass Dartmouth Gallery 244, Star Store Campus
