BBG Loves: Levi's 'Chosen Family' at the LGBTQ+ museum

26 June 2019

Sometimes we choose our own family. This is the theme of the one-week photography exhibition by Levi's and Queer Britain, which celebrates the support networks that exist within the LGBTQ+ community. This is definitely something worth celebrating.

We were super excited to learn this week that one of our favourite denim brands has linked up with Queer Britain, the national LGBTQ+ museum, for an inspiring event in the lead up to this year's London Pride. Having supported the LGBTQ+ community for more than 30 years, Levi's have confirmed a 3-year collaboration with Queer Britain which launches with the curated photography exhibition Chosen Family.

This first exhibition will showcase four artists: Alia Romagnoli, Bex Day, Kuba Ryniewicz, and Robert Taylor. Telling the stories of different individuals from within the community, the concept of Chosen Family plays a significant role in the lives of LGBTQ+ people. Representing the support networks that exist within the community, the exhibition explores the idea that family is not necessarily something you are born into but is something you might build for yourself.

With London Pride 2019 fast approaching, the museum opened its doors with a private viewing Monday 24th June and remains open to the public for one week. Levi's and Queer Britain will join forces to march in the London Pride parade and will continue to work together over 3 years with a planned permanent residency in 2022.
