LGBTQ+ Worcester – For the Record

April 26, 2019 – November 16, 2019


April 26, 2019 – November 16, 2019

This exciting exhibit includes the collection of oral histories, the creation of an LGBTQ+ archive, and educational programming to complement an exhibit on Gay Worcester. Commemorating the 50th anniversary of New York’s Stonewall Uprising and the advent of the modern gay liberation movement, the project will bring together the scattered documentation of Worcester County’s LGBTQ+ experience in partnership with College of the Holy Cross, Clark University, Worcester Polytechnic Institute and Digital Worcester. The exhibition and programming will run from April-October 2019 at WHM.
