The Naked Truth: Queer Artist Interviews was created to highlight the artists of the 2020 Naked Truth Pride Exhibition. Expanding beyond the 5 artists of the show, the show will continue beyond June with interviews of queer artists of all backgrounds and mediums, sharing their lives, discussing their work, and exploring the connections between their sexuality and their artistic practices, processes, and careers.

Beyond the 2020 June show, The Naked Truth: Queer Artist Interviews seeks to amplify the reach of queer artists, as the freelance art community has been deeply affected by the COVID-19 crisis, both bringing their works to a wider audience and bringing us all closer through a digital community of celebrating art and sharing our unique narratives as queer people.
