The framed photo/text exhibit, Shall Not Be Recognized, includes 30 portraits of same-sex couples in committed, long-term relationships. We make it easy for you to bring this informative exhibit to your community. The goal is to show the exhibit in environments where it has a chance to make a difference — public places like churches, hospitals, universities, office buildings, and the like.
