      A conscientious objector to the Vietnam War, Eugene Richards joined VISTA (Volunteers in Service to America) in 1968 and found himself  working in a community service organization in eastern Arkansas. Running afoul  of the Ku Klux Klan earned him a serious beating and numerous threats, but he  left Arkansas with a series of haunting photographs of rural poverty that  launched his career. For seventeen years, he traveled the world as a  photojournalist for the agency Magnum and now focuses on his own projects.  Intensely personal and deeply felt, his work also reflects a lifelong  commitment to social activism, whether he is photographing the ravages of  cocaine addiction, his first wife’s struggle with breast cancer, or the  emotional aftermath of 9/11. UK Art Museum gallery hours are Tuesday – Sunday: noon to 5 pm; Friday noon to 8 pm.

The purpose of OUTspoken is to bring forward voices of LGBTQ* survivors of interpersonal violence such as rape, sexual assault, partner violence, stalking, harassment, and hate crimes. We hope that this event will help UK’s administration and the Lexington community understand that this is an issue on campus and that queer survivors need more support. We will be hosting a 3 part event that includes a featured guest artist, Mary Lambert, and speakers, an open forum where queer survivors can share their stories, and an ending discussion on how to take care of yourself and others. At the beginning and end of the event, there will be tabling fair of supportive organizations and resources offered in both the Lexington and University community.
