Remembering our shared past to envision bright futures.
Dig deep into LGBTQIA history through archival research and artifacts in this new educational series which connects students with some of the fantastic items preserved in the Gay and Lesbian Archive of Mid-America (GLAMA), and through these curated artifacts, the broader history of LGBTQIA experiences in Kansas City.
Four sessions this academic year will explore different areas of the archive and help to tell important pieces of our shared history – we look forward to seeing you at all four! Join us for “Trans Stories in the Midwest” on Tuesday, November 15, 2022 from 1:00pm – 3:00pm in Room 325 at Miller Nichols Library. On February 20, 2023 we will explore “Black LGBTQIA Stories” and on April 10, 2023 the focus will be “The Story of KC Drag.”
This event is free and open to all UMKC students, faculty, and staff as well as the general public. To receive First Semester Experience for participating in a Queer in the Archive session, visit the LGBTQIA Services events page in RooGroups.
