“Out for the Run,” a photographic and archival exhibit by Da Ping Luo, brings to life the achievement and solidarity of Front Runners, the LGBT running club that has unified an international community of gay athletes over four decades. Luo mixes his own photos – soulful expressions of meaningful moments – with historic images and memorabilia to celebrate the communal power of everyday gay athletics. “I’ve been exploring the larger meaning of Front Runners as a societal force for over 5 years,” said Luo. “Clubs like Front Runners provide individuals a greater sense of LGBT identity, as well as community, that they probably never had before.”
