One of the most interesting gallery shows out there right now can be found at the ONE Archives Gallery & Museum in West Hollywood. The show space is actually just a room housed in the West Hollywood Recover Center (the actual archives are on West Adams), but it's one pivotal and important room that can easily fascinate and inform you of the history of LGBT issues in Los Angeles.

Out of the Closet & Into the Street: Posters of LGBTQ Struggles and Celebrations is a collaboration between ONE and the locally-based Center for the Study of Political Graphics that showcases over 75 political posters, much that deals with Los Angeles and California. It helps us remember the struggles of the past, but also the ones that are still ongoing, making this a timely show as the verdict in the Prop 8 trial nears.
