The display will include, books, photographs, newsletters, publications and flyers.
This exhibition highlights what it means to be both black and gay and some of the issues, challenges, and thoughts of this often-invisible community within Dutch society.
Marlon Reina adviser to the exhibition says 'It is about time to put the Black people that helped form the Dutch gay scene in the picture.'
We Live Here! is curated by Ajamu X, a London based internationally acclaimed photographer and community archivist specialising in Black Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender history, heritage and lived experiences.
