LGBTQ Community at UWG Exhibit

Live Out!: Identity & Activism of Diverse Gender & Sexualities on Campus Exhibit
 Drag Queen Show
Live Out!: Identity & Activism of Diverse Gender & Sexualities on Campus, curated by Special Collections Graduate Student Assistant, Laurel Durham, student volunteer, Jazz Lee-Coley, in partnership with LAMBDA, the Responsible Sexuality Committee, and the Center for Public History, draws on historical materials from Ingram Library’s Special Collections and materials generously loaned by LAMBDA, to tell part of the story of the students of diverse genders and sexualities on campus.
 
The exhibit on display through December 2016, explores why engaging the LGBTQ community and the non-LQBTQ community is vitally important: to share experiences, strive for social and health care improvements, prevent bullying and violence, secure freedoms, and promote policies which acknowledge differences and fight invisibility.
 

An exhibit-related event for students will be held on  October 19th at 4:30 PM  in Ingram Library's Thomas B. Murphy Reading Room.

The Center for Public History is currently conducting oral histories with current and past UWG students, faculty, and staff as part of our collective campus effort to acknowledge, document, and celebrate our diverse student body. A showing of clips from the Center's LGBTQ Oral History Project will be held on  November 30th  in Ingram Library.
