    Online Event: LGBTQ Living History

    Wednesday, October 20, 2021 – 7:00PM to 8:30PM

    October is LGBTQ History Month! This year, GAAMC is teaming up with Roxbury Public Library to produce a live event to be held over Zoom. Our program will feature live and recorded segments of members of the LGBTQ community explaining significant points along the LGBTQ history timeline and how their lives were directly impacted by these events…good and bad.

    This event is part of the Roxbury Library’s Common Grounds series presented by the Library and the Roxbury Coalition for Social Change, which explores and facilitates civil conversations on race, political beliefs, gender, creed and more, celebrating diversity in Roxbury.

    A Living History of the LGBTQ+ road traveled, speakers will give an overview of major events in the LGBTQ+ timeline. Panelists will relate personal histories regarding Same Gender Adoption (1997), Marriage Equality (2015), Protection of Transgendered Students (2016), and more to be announced.

    Call the library at 973-584-2400.
