HistoryMiami Museum is Launching Queer Miami: A History of LGBTQ Communities

Gay and Lesbian, Living History

Queer Miami: A History of LGBTQ Communities, curated by Miami native and history professor Julio Capů Jr., will chronicle Miamiís queer past, reflecting its gender and sexual diversity for over one hundred years. Through artifacts, photographs, archival footage, and more, the exhibition will display the stories of Miamiís queer communities who, despite discrimination, isolation, and violence, managed to carve out spaces for themselves and made their voices heard in southern Florida. The exhibition opens Saturday, March 15 at HistoryMiami Museum. Queer Miami will be HistoryMiami Museumís featured exhibition for the 2019-2020 calendar. Displayed in the museumís 5,000 square foot gallery, Queer Miami will address topics such as: policing and criminalization, community development, advocacy and activism, immigration and the AIDS crisis, and what the future holds for Miamiís queer community. Visitors will be able to see memorabilia from some of Miamiís oldest gay bars, photographs of rallies and marches, archival material from Anita Bryantís ďSave Our ChildrenĒ campaign, historical footage, and original video interviews from the people involved in creating Miamiís LGBTQ communities. Interactive components will encourage visitors to contribute their own story to the exhibition. HistoryMiami Museum will open the exhibition with a preview party on Friday, March 15 at 6 pm.
