Just in time for Valentine's Day – a celebration of long-lasting LGBTQ love with a special exhibition in Poughkeepsie. 

"First Comes Love: Portraits of Enduring LGBTQ Relationships," an exhibition of photographs and love stories will be on display through March 5, 2018 at the James W. Palmer ’90 Gallery at Vassar College.
 
Philadelphia photographer Barbara Proud (aka B. Proud) has documented the lives and enduring relationships of LGBTQ couples from across the U.S.

The photo exhibition is just one element of the First Comes Love Project, a traveling exhibition of photographs, love stories and video interviews documenting LGBTQ couples who have been together for 10, 20, 30, 40, and even 50+ years.
