Christopher Street West Pride Festival, West Hollywood, USA | Website

reclaim:pride, ONE Archives

ONE Archives + RECAPS Magazine + Zach Blas

Part of Momentum, located in the West Hollywood Library Parking Garage

ONE Archives is excited to collaborate with RECAPS Magazine to infiltrate (by invitation) the upcoming Los Angeles Christopher Street West Pride Festival as part of festival’s exhibition Momentum. reclaim:pride includes original posters submitted by activists, artists, writers, and thinkers on the topic of queer resistance alongside an eclectic display of materials related to pride from the archives. The project calls attention to the radical beginnings of the pride parade as a defiant claiming of public space while connecting the archive to contemporary queer issues ignored or omitted from mainstream gay and lesbian politics. Buttons will also be distributed with both submitted designs and reproductions of radical buttons from the archives, and artist Zach Blas will conduct a project related to his ongoing series Facial Weaponization Suite.

After the exhibition, submitted works, project documentation and additional resources will be uploaded to RECAPS Magazine as a special reclaim:pride issue.

reclaim:pride is organized David Frantz, Curator at ONE Archives, and Martabel Wasserman, founder of RECAPS Magazine. Support for reclaim:pride provided by Christopher Street West.
