Due to ongoing security issues related to inaugural protests in the mid-Market neighborhood this weekend, Behind the Scenes: The GLBT Historical Society Archives open house scheduled for Saturday, January 21st has been postponed until March 18th, 2017.
We were just notified our building will be on lock-down, and we also want to ensure everyone’s safety. Of course, we also support everyone who may decide to join the protests.
We apologize for any inconvenience, and will send you an invite to the March 18 open house event. If you made a donation on EventBrite associated with this free event, and are not able to attend on March 18th, please let us know and we will promptly issue a refund.
Again, our sincere apologies, and we hope to see you soon.
Have a safe weekend!
The GLBT Historical Society preserves one of the world’s largest collections of LGBTQ historical materials. The archives are used by historians, writers, filmmakers and others researchers, yet they remain little known to the wider community. This special open house will offer members of the public a behind-the-scenes tour, including a rare opportunity to visit the archival reserve normally accessible only to Historical Society staff.
Managing archivist Joanna Black will provide an introduction to the collections and the function of the archives. Visitors also will have a chance to see highlights from the holdings that have never before been displayed publicly. Guided tours of the archives will take place at 2:30 p.m. and 3:30 p.m. Light refreshments will be served. FREE REGISTRATION COMING SOON.
