The Minnesota Historical Society preserves and makes available a wide range of materials chronicling Minnesota's history and culture. The goals of the Collections Department are to collect and preserve; provide access and interpretation; and engage in education and outreach. This blog is a tool to share these stories and let people know what is happening in the department.
In celebration of Pride Month and the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots, we have put together a small exhibit in the Library Lobby of items from our collection. These cover issues such as letters of love; changing public attitudes; marriage equality; and faces of the community.
The Library is free and open to the public; check here http://sites.mnhs.org/library/ for hours. Come see what's inside!
This flag was carried by members of Lesbian and Gay Youth Together in the 1994 Minneapolis GLBT Pride Parade, marking the 25th anniversary of Stonewall.
