As the world’s top art museums strive — like everyone — to return to some sense of normalcy after a year of pandemic-induced chaos, an exciting new landscape of LGBTQ-themed art shows has begun to unfold for 2021, one in which queer artists of color are perhaps better represented than they’ve ever been before.
