11:30 AM – 12 PM
Gallery Chat with the curatorial team
Regular museum hours to follow (12-3 PM)
This exhibition will connect the ongoing and urgent human rights concerns of LGBTQIA+ people around the world (emphasis on Chechnya, Uganda and Brazil) with the various forms of systemic violence experienced by LGBTQIA+ people in the US. The exhibition will be rooted historically and extend out from a presentation of Nazi persecution of homosexuals during the era of the Third Reich.
Exhibition content includes a presentation of gay culture in Weimar era Germany; the systematic persecution of homosexuals during the era of the Third Reich; representations of historical and contemporary acts of solidarity, resilience and resistance, information about the lived experiences of queer youth and trans people of color in the US today.
This exhibition was developed and curated by local museum professionals, queer activists and artists and university scholars and is sponsored by Ellen Freeman and Roe Callahan.
Museum hours are Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday, Sunday 1-5 pm, and Friday 12-3 pm
The Jewish History Museum is located at 564 S. Stone Ave.
