  1. Sept. 24, 2019 - Feb. 16, 2020
    Coming Out, Affecting Change
    The Virginia Museum of History and Culture has updated their signature exhibit, “The Story of Virginia”, to include pieces from the LGBTQ Civil Rights Movement. The enhancements consist of documents and memorabilia from VHMC’s growing LGBTQ historical archive. The exhibit presents an incredible opportunity to educate the public about the decades of persecution the LGBTQ community has faced, and to highlight the incredible successes of some of the figures at the forefront of the movement. In addition, the museum is collaborating with LGBTQ+ communities to document these important stories by collecting oral histories, images, documents, and artifacts.

    An LGBTQ Veteran's Day Celebration

This important event, "Our Stories, Our Truths", gives LGBTQ veterans a chance to come together and share their truths. The event will take place at Diversity Richmond at 1407 Sherwood Avenue from 6 - 8 pm. Details at https://www.facebook.com/events/2286509561477799/
