Where can you see images of the first African-American drag queen crowned “Ms. Gay Charleston, South Carolina, 1978″ alongside beautiful 1958 beefcake boys and gun-toting cowgirl lesbians? Where do trans crafters meet specters of Felix Gonzalez-Torres and Emily Duckinson?

CHRONOTOPIA, the National Queer Arts Festival‘s annual visual arts exhibition explores the past, present and future of queer people that will permanently alter the way you think about queer art and history.
