Tonight is Forever, an immersive multidisciplinary installation by Gabriel Martinez, investigates, celebrates and honors the ongoing global, national and regional struggles for LGBTQ+ liberation. This project is presented in relationship to the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Uprising. Martinez draws from over 5,000 images sourced from months of research at the John J. Wilcox Archives, along with images contributed by local Philadelphia communities, to create a visual confluence of perspectives and historical moments (mid 1960s to present) that reflects vital aspects of LGBTQ courage & pride.

Thanks to our annual sponsor Nova Sign Group for helping us make events like these possible.
