Did you know about the The American lgbtq+ Museum in NYC?

Congratulations to Ben Garcia, the new executive director of the The American lgbtq+ Museum in New York! As this piece notes, the East Coast facility will be only the second museum dedicated solely to LGBTQ history and culture in the U.S., after our own GLBT Historical Society Museum (which just celebrated its 11-year anniversary).
We look forward to working with the New York team to make sure people everywhere can access our vast q***r past!

🎉 Yesterday we broke ground for the The American lgbtq+ Museum, New York’s first museum dedicated to LGBTQ+ history and culture.
We were honored to celebrate with friends, guest speakers, and changemakers. Our expansion project will add more than 70,000 square feet of space for both ourselves and the American LGBTQ+ Museum. This project will also provide us with additional classrooms, galleries, collections study areas, and a compact storage facility for our renowned Patricia D. Klingenstein Library.

As the first openly gay man and HIV+ person to be New York City Council Speaker, it was an honor to be at The American lgbtq+ Museum’s groundbreaking ceremony.
Without the stories of our pioneers, I wouldn't be who I am today. They're what will continue the LGBTQ movement, and I can't wait to see them all take shape in the museum.

“The ultimate goal is to bring about a religious government in America. And that’s been in the works from the beginning. When Betsy’s family and other right wing religious leaders joined The Council for National Policy in the 1980s they thought the country was getting too liberal. They could see attitudes about gender and sexualtiy were starting to shift and worried fundamentalist Christian values would lose their hold on American life. So they plotted how they could bring about a religious government in America even as their ideology became unpopular.
This is why the anti-trans agenda is front and center. Not only are The Council for National Policy members opposed to trans people on religious grounds but they have found that using anti-trans issues is a way to motivate white, rural voters to the polls. And because white, rural voters show up in huge numbers--even in off-year elections the Council for National Policy can use these voters to seize power.”
