The Dirty Truth is a one-night pop-up art show happening this August in Seattle. It is a NSFW Queer visual art show that tackles themes of Acceptance, Equality, Marriage, Family, and Relationships. We’re looking for all types of visual art that challenges notions of assimilation. What is your dirty truth? What are the realities of your lives that become covered when we’re asked to assimilate into mainstream relationship culture? Is marriage the issue? What does your family and/or relationship look like? Are you looking for acceptance? Is equality the goal? What’s your take?
