MEDIA Coverage of ORGULLO
Throughout the twentieth century,
clothing has been used by lesbians
and gay men as a means of
expressing self-identity and of
signaling to one another.

The AIDS Epidemic all but wiped
out a generation of Talent, Artists,
Designers, and sent the LGBT
community back in the closet for fear
of persecution.

THE FROST ART MUSEUM FIU is one of the largest free-standing art museums in Florida, the Patricia & Phillip
Frost Art Museum at Florida International University was founded in 1977 and is the Smithsonian Affiliate in Miami.  

The museum’s new lakeside building debuted in 2008, designed by Yann Weymouth (the chief of design on the I.
M. Pei Grand Louvre Project). The museum’s mission is three-fold: to be a campus resource for the entire FIU
community; to offer interdisciplinary training in the arts for the next generation of artists and art historians; and to
serve as a premier cultural destination for the residents of Miami, and the 15 million visitors to one of the world’s
most vibrant cultural destinations - home to global cultural events including Art Basel.

The museum is accredited by the American Alliance of Museums. More information at
