Rainbow LaGuardia asks what it means to be queer in an educational setting. In a previous era, an exhibition like this was unthinkable. During McCarthyism in the 1950s, a period of political and cultural repression, an untold number of professors in universities and colleges lost their jobs because of their sexuality. Until 1973, the American Psychiatric Association classified “homosexuality” as a mental illness. In 1992, during the “culture wars,” District 24 in Queens rejected the Children of the Rainbow Curriculum by the New York City Board of Education because of references to families headed by same-sex couples. Struggles continue, as these individuals observe, but they all feel comfortable enough in 2020 to reflect about their gender identities and sexual orientation in a public forum. In doing so, they enrich the learning environment at LaGuardia Community College and beyond, and remind us that only when we are our authentic selves can we reach our full potential.
