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 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 “The Story of KC Drag” on Monday, April 10, 2023 from 1:00pm – 3:00pm in Room 325 at Miller Nichols Library.
