The Dickinson College Archives & Special Collections invites the public to view a collection of artifacts and archival documents from the LGBT Center of Central PA History Project. The exhibit, “History Comes Out: LGBTQ+ Spaces and Places,” will be on display until Dec. 13 in the Waidner-Spahr Library’s lower level.
From the historic Stonewall Inn in New York City to Stallions Bar in Harrisburg, this exhibition highlights historically important spaces for the LGBTQ+ community. It features photos, programs and artifacts from Pride Festival of Central PA gatherings, gay businesses and gathering places, spaces used for religious observances and the evolution of the LGBT Center of Central PA.
The LGBT Center of Central PA in Harrisburg and the Dickinson Archives & Special Collections are collaborating to collect original documents that depict stories of LGBTQ+ history in the region, as told by those who lived them. The documents include written accounts, video interviews, photographs and artifacts that illustrate and support those stories.
Exhibit hours are Monday-Friday from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. and weekends from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., excluding college holidays.
