Rainbow Arts | MALGRA

“All things Rainbow” – this exhibition is for our rainbow communities and people to share their stories and expressions through the media of art. Every LGBTQI+ person has a coming out story or tales of tribulation. We hope that by our communities sharing their stories via art the wider community will have an understanding of our stories. We have also encouraged all of our rainbow people to share any of their works of art in order to support our communities.
