Join us on June 28 between 7-10pm for the opening reception of our 3rd annual Pride exhibition That’s So Gay. Exploring notions of queer gender identity and objectification through many diverse lenses, here’s a look at Elisha Lim whose work is featured at That’s So Gay on the 3rd and 4th floors.
Elisha Lim uses creativity to celebrate and decorate queer people of colour. Wanting to portray the beauty, dignity and power of being neither straight, nor white, nor cis-gendered Lim has: illustrated novels, wall calendars, books and magazines, including the Bitch Magazine acclaimed “Sissy Calendar”, The Illustrated Gentleman, and most notably – 100 Butches, a graphic novel of portraits and anecdotes about masculine queers. Lim is also proud to have co-founded Toronto events like “Fresh To Def”, a party celebrating racialized queerness, and “The Sex Appeals”, a shameless anti-racist band that sang choruses like “you used photoshop to make me two shades light / I’m going to get you” at the Art Gallery of Ontario.
