Explore artwork by local artists of all ages from Indy’s LGBTQ+ community. This exhibit
intends to promote equality, inclusivity, and diversity by highlighting local LGBTQ+ artists.
Artwork showcased will aim to be reflective of individuals’ identities, stories, and
experiences to achieve awareness of LGBTQ+ issues, especially as they relate to our
Hoosier environment. Celebrate diversity through the voices of these artists, and unite
as one in support of our local LGBTQ+ community. We are partnering with Indy Pride to
host this exhibit and First Friday. Stay tuned for more details!
Indy Pride, Inc. produces events which educate, honor our history, and celebrate the diversity of the Indianapolis Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer community. We exist to unite and serve our members and the LGBTQ+ community of Central Indiana through leadership development, educational programs, and community events which achieve inclusivity, equality, strong community connections, and awareness of LGBTQ+ issues.

A Learning Experience
Aaron Dorsett has been interested in creative expression since the age of 6. “People
came around to see what I was doing-it was something that I liked to do, it was a hobby.”
Aaron’s father was an artist, specializing in drawing. Aaron’s continued interest with art
evolved as he grew older. “In high school the teachers saw potential in me-they helped
me with supplies and gave me constructive feedback on what I could do better.” Aaron
identifies this period of his life as one of “great exploration-seeing what other people are
doing with art.”
Aaron is hopeful his work/art will encourage others. “I want people to have my art inspire
them and help them overcome obstacles that are keeping them from achieving their goals.”
