A new exhibit at UC Berkeley opens next week called “A Place at the Table: A Gathering of LGBT Text, Image and Voice” and includes photos LGBT artists in history.
The image of Gertrude Stein and Alice B Toklas walking their poodle in France is included in the exhibit. 
The exhibit “features work by artists – including novelists, poets, photographers, classical composers, blues singers, cartoonists and drag queens – who all have taken their unique and often difficult life experiences and transmuted them into beautiful and fierce art,” said exhibit co-curator William Benemann in a news release.
The exhibit opens April 4 at Berkeley’s Bancroft Library.
