A photo exhibit showcasing members of Charlottesville's gay, lesbian and transgender community kicks off a week of pride events Monday.

The Charlottesville Pride Community Network is hosting the free art reception at FIREFISH Gallery from  7 p.m. to 10 p.m. Organizers say the portraits are a way to feature the diversity among the LGBTQ community.

"Charlottesville tends to be a very cliquish place, where people of different races and different backgrounds don't mix very often.  And so this is one experience in Charlottesville that's extremely rare, where you see every type of person showing up," said Amy Marshall, president of the Charlottesville Pride Community Network.

Monday's exhibit is the first in a week of events culminating with the second annual Charlottesville Pride Festival on Saturday.
