Immense gratitude to everyone who came together yesterday (in person and virtually), to celebrate the groundbreaking of our future home with The New York Historical Society.

This new building will not only house the American LGBTQ+ Museum, but also the Billie Jean King archives and several new community and classroom spaces.

This was such an inspiring event, and honored all the work that has brought us here -- and all the work to be done. We look forward to embarking on this journey with you all!

Join us on June 24th at 6PM ET for a one-hour panel with virtual tour of Radical Tenderness: Trans for Trans Portraiture.

RESERVE YOUR TICKETS: https://www.nyhistory.org/programs/radical-tenderness-trans-trans-portraiture?fbclid=IwAR1g19jkjP9e0nlMMWXtVPqKY2LTL4FAuTwvdF0Y-4TwTowMQGMANm42Zlk

Radical Tenderness: Trans for Trans Portraiture, on view at the Alice Austen House Museum, highlights photographic work from four trans and non-binary artists whose portrait photography exudes tender intimacy and calls for a radical shift in visibility politics.

Guest curator, Dr. Eliza Steinbock, will be joined by participating artist Zackary Drucker for a dialogue about the ways that trans and q***r people use artwork to connect with one another, historically and today. The discussion will be preceded by a guided virtual tour of the exhibition by the Alice Austen House’s Executive Director Victoria Munro.⠀

Hosted by the New-York Historical Society @nyhistory and the American LGBTQ+ Museum @lgbtq_museum in partnership with the Alice Austen House Museum @aliceaustenhouse and the Stonewall 50 Consortium.⠀

Hello! We're the American LGBTQ+ Museum, a new collaboration dedicated to preserving, researching, and sharing LGBTQ+ history and culture.

While other great institutions and organizations exist to investigate, preserve, and tell our histories, we believe a national LGBTQ+ museum is overdue.

In the years to come, our plan is to create a physical space in New York City — one that is vibrant and welcoming, both visually and cognitively, for the entire LGBTQ+ community.

We're in the early stages of this journey, and we hope you join us! Follow us here and on our other platforms [https://linktr.ee/thelgbtqmuseum], sign up for updates [https://mailchi.mp/ab9df78b7730/the-american-lgbtq-museum], and please share your thoughts and ideas with us!

“History is essential to understanding—it illuminates the journey of an individual, a family, a community, an idea, of laws, institutions, norms or nations. LGBTQ history is especially urgent because our communities have emerged from denial, repression, and invisibility into acceptance, pride and full societal participation. This Museum helps forge the future by documenting our past.”

- Urvashi Vaid, Attorney, Writer, Activist; Secretary, the American LGBTQ+ Museum
