Join the DC Preservation League, Capital Pride Alliance, and Rainbow History Project on Thursday, October 28th at 6:00pm EDT for a virtual presentation, led by Dr. Rebecca Graham, about the DC Office of Planning’s Historic Context Statement for Washington’s LGBTQ Resources!
Completed in 2019, this study explores the history of Washington, DC’s LGBTQIA+ community, while highlighting important themes such as: Politics, Law, Activism, Arts, and Health Advocacy. It also identifies important sites that represent the history of this community in the nation’s capital.
This study is a major step in not only recognizing and amplifying the history of our city’s LGBTQ+ community, but working towards expanding our local and national registers of historic sites to better represent and preserve their stories.
