WORCESTER – Like the layers of an oil painting that blend and develop over time, life builds in layers.
Thursday Night, April 25, at the opening of “LGBTQ+ Worcester — For The Record” at the Worcester Historical Museum, guests of the event were treated to a glimpse into a community that has many layers. A community that has helped shape the culture and community of Worcester’s history, and its present standing as a destination for art and culture in the Commonwealth.
Commemorating the 50th anniversary of New York’s Stonewall Uprising and the advent of the modern gay liberation movement, the project skillfully brings together various documentation of Worcester County’s LGBTQ+ experience. Powerful language and images of local men and women actively immersed in the struggle for equality. A visual history of leadership, celebrity, and everyday life in a community that has helped support itself, and others, over the past half century.
This exciting exhibit includes a collection of oral histories, the creation of an LGBTQ+ archive, and educational programming to complement the exhibit on Gay Worcester.
In partnership with College of the Holy Cross, Clark University, Worcester Polytechnic Institute and Digital Worcester, the exhibition and programming will run from April through October 2019 at the Worcester Historical Museum.
