|Description:||Join us for the launch of our FOR THE RECORD LGBTQ+ WORCESTER catalog on Sunday January 26th from 5-7pm at the MB Lounge located at 40 Grafton Street in Worcester. The 116-page, full-color volume documents the Worcester County LGBTQ+ story.
Like all the endeavors of Worcester Historical Museum, FOR THE RECORD is the work of community, a celebration of Worcester itself. “One of the main ways gay people become isolated", commented Josephine Ross, GLCCCM co-chair in 1993 as the initial LGBTQ+ archive was being established, “is when our history is taken away from us.”
Enjoy selected readings from authors/exhibit curators Joseph F. Cullon, WPI, Robert Deam Tobin, Clark University and Stephanie E. Yuhl of the College of the Holy Cross.
We will be offering a special launch event price of $25.00 for the catalog. Regularly sold at $28.00. Free admission to the event. Light refreshments provided.
