Gay Broward residents sought for art project

Members of the gay community in Broward County are needed for an art installation at the Pembroke Pines Teen Center. It's for an Inside Out Broward project as part of the 12-month celebration of Broward 100 – Celebrating the Art of Community.

The year-long series of events, installations and activities to celebrate Broward County turning 100 years old will focus on the power of the arts to bond and build communities.

The Pines Boulevard teen center will feature portraits of the gay community in support of gay youth. Portraits will be wheat pasted onto the facade of the building.

The group message is “Coming Out to a Network of Support in Pembroke Pines,” partnering gay youth with adult members of the gay community/work force, showing the younger generation that there is support across age, gender and occupational lines.

Participants include members of the Pembroke Pines Police Department, high school and college students, members of the Original Fort Lauderdale Gay Men’s Chorus and local artists.

To be photographed for Inside Out, adult members of the gay community (living in Broward) can contact Jill Slaughter at 954-450-6947 or jslaughter@ppines.com.
