A NEW art exhibition that aims to debunk the myth of Aboriginal sexuality being synonymous with being straight will launch tonight in Sydney.

The A-Gender exhibition, which will be open throughout the Mardi Gras season and until March 28, displays a range of artworks that translate issues like gender identity and equality, marriage equality, health, social and political matters within the realm of Aboriginal identity.

Curator and emerging artist Jasmine Sarin said the exhibition allows a platform for Aboriginal artists to explore Aboriginal gender identity.

“This exhibition is an opportunity for Aboriginal artists in the LBGTI community to creatively discuss the things that matter to us, from marriage equality to cultural identity,” she said.

A-Gender art is on at the Boomalli Aboriginal Art Gallery, Leichhardt. The gallery is open Wednesday-Sunday, 11am-4pm. It ends March 28.
