Alabama photography exhibit explores dynamics of youths’ sexual identity

| Sunday, April 27, 2014
Foster Noone, 17, of Pelham, Ala., looks at a personal photo in a new exhibit featuring images of young people with varied sexual identities and preferences during the installation of the work in Birmingham, Ala. Self-identified as gender fluid, Noone is among a dozen young people who posed for photos in the exhibit, which opened Wednesday, April 23, at the Birmingham Civil Rights Institute.
For many, it's difficult to understand Foster Noone's sexual identity. The 17-year-old uses the labels of bisexual, trans and gender neutral all at once. A photography exhibition that opened at the Birmingham Civil Rights Institute on Wednesday night seeks to put a face on such young people while exploring the difficult dynamics of family acceptance of their identities in the Deep South.
