The Pride Centre’s new exhibition, Freedom is Mine (Jan – April 2022) , features powerful portraits of LGBTIQ+ refugees and people seeking asylum.

LGBTIQ+ people from many parts of the world face persecution, violence and expulsion from their families and communities, and may be forced to flee their country. Those who come to Australia can experience prejudice, isolation, and material deprivation as they seek the freedom to be themselves.

This intimate photographic exhibition of LGBTIQ+ refugees and people seeking asylum who are members of non-profit queer development agency Many Coloured Sky’s Queer Refugee and Asylum Seeker Peers community. Photographer Peter Casamento gave his time to capture each participant in ways that help them to share their stories, challenges and hopes for the future.

Open now and a part of the Midsumma Festival program. Find more information at
