  2. 2. Queer Art • Artists have engaged in same-sex relationships since antiquity, but sexual identity is a modern concept • Due to social prohibitions against homosexuality many LGBTQ artists remained in the closet • The Stonewall Riot in 1969 and subsequent gay liberation movement marks a major turning point for LGBTQ politics and culture • Concepts of censorship versus visibility and assimilation versus intervention structure queer art • LGBTQ is not a monolithic category • “Queer” was reclaimed from a pejorative to an in- your-face identity term in the politicized context of the AIDS crisis in the 1980s-1990s
