  TODAYS GAY & LESBIAN EVENTS

Saturday September 12th

Saving LGBTQ History Archives in a Time of Activism
6:00pm

Current events, including the wave of social activism, emphasize the importance of collecting and preserving items-often fragile or unique-that help to capture the essence of these experiences for future generations. LGBTQ history is a history of activism, a history of struggles against pathologizing, violence, discrimination, and marginalization, and a history of victories related to acceptance, inclusion, liberty, and equality. Over the two days of September 12-13 there will be a series of 90 minute sparkling salons (10-12 people each) that will highlight Gerber/Hart's archives of activism. This will be an opportunity for intimate discussions on the current work and future of Gerber/Hart including the presentation of the new 5 year strategic plan, a tour of the restricted stacks by the director, and a tour of the newly opened exhibit on queer activism in the 1990s by a curator. Sparkling wine, sparkling water, and wine, as well as light snacks will be served during the salons. Salon times will be 6:00 and 8:00 p.m. on Saturday, September 12 and 10:00 a.m., 12:00, 2:00, 4:00, 6:00 p.m. on Sunday, September 13. Recommended guidelines for gatherings and food service amid the COVID-19 pandemic will be followed. Unless guidelines are relaxed, all attenders will be required to wear a face mask. Salon time reservations can be made with ticket purchase.


Please check with the event organizers to see if the event is still scheduled or cancelled.
