14th Pride in Southbridge presents The LGBTQ+ History Project of Worcester County
To honor the 14th Pride in Southbridge the Jacob Edwards Library has invited members of The LGBTQ+ History Project of Worcester County and Worcester Historical Museum for an evening of community storytelling and sharing. The presentation will include an overview of what is planned as a larger project to build a sustainable physical and digital archive of Worcester County’s LGBTQ+ history. The project is underway and has begun chronicling and archiving the stories of our community members. This effort builds upon materials deposited at the Worcester Historical Museum (WHM) by members of the now defunct Gay & Lesbian Community Coalition of Central Massachusetts (GLCCCM) in 1993.
We encourage you to bring any of your old photos, artifacts, and stories related to being LGBTQ in Southbridge and/or Worcester County. This story is not finished. The physical exhibit, LGBTQ+ Worcester for the Record (on view at WHM), initiates a conversation and we now rely on you to complete, extend, and correct the record. You can raise your voice and be included!
