Telling Queer History

  • Minneapolis Central Library 300 Nicollet Mall Minneapolis, MN, 55401 United States (map)

Identity and coming out are not one time things; we change, grow, learn and come out again and again. Join Telling Queer History for small group storytelling on the Evolution of Identity.

TELLING QUEER HISTORY is a series of gatherings based on sharing stories in an open, informal, and participatory format. It’s about connecting queer communities, queer history and generations so that we can learn from our shared past, present, and future.*

*Allies are welcome to join, listen and volunteer. Hearing our stories is a great way to be an ally, allowing and assisting us in having the space to tell our stories is a way to be an advocate. Thanks!
