In celebration of LGBT Pride Month, we've put together a slideshow featuring 15 gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and queer art exhibitions on view during the month of June. From Portland to Boston and some places in between, these exhibits are hosted by museums, galleries, and community centers that are bringing LGBT art out of the closet and into the public sphere.

Check out the slideshow and tell us about any exhibitions on view in your hometowns in the comments section below.

Leslie + Lohman Museum of Gay and Lesbian Art
1  of  16
Leslie + Lohman Museum of Gay and Lesbian Art in New York City is an art space dedicated to the exhibition and preservation of LGBTQ art and artists of past and present. All year round, the works of the museum focus on the erotic, political, romantic and social aspects of the LGBTQ experience. This month, the museum is featuring an exhibit entitled The Piers: Art and Sex along the New York Waterfront, which illustrates how the gay liberation movement on the 1970s transformed the cultural and social landscape of New York. Artists exhibited include Vito Acconci, Peter Hujar, Shelley Seccombe, Ivan Galietti, and Gordon Matta-Clark.
