«There is a rich, yet fading history, that many in the queer culture are not aware of. Our community and its safe spaces exist through sacrifices made by many people throughout its varied and difficult history. A portion of that history that is hard to identify, is the struggle for acknowledgement and restitution of the crimes committed against homosexuals in the Nazi concentration camps during World War II. These are stories that are hard to hear, and today, few of the remaining survivors are willing to tell.
Castration. Sexual mutilation. Social excommunication. These punishments, and more, were carried out in part through a loose interpretation of Paragraph 175 in German Law. ‘Sexual deviants’ who were deemed ‘unfit’ for society were tortured and exterminated. Over fifteen thousand documented men lost their lives for the conviction of their orientation. Nearly all of the survivors kept quiet. The art and sculptures in this show are to help myself and my peers understand the battles, horrors, and sacrifices that were committed so that our community may continue to flourish forward.» -Lorenzo Doyle
