A Vermont Humanities series hosted by Deborah Rawson Memorial Library will be presented on Friday, October 20th at 4pm by speaker Meg Tamulonis.
In this presentation we will explore how objects such as banners, T-shirts, and buttons in the Vermont Queer Archives at the Pride Center of Vermont reflect currents and changes in the lives of Vermont’s LGBTQ+ community.
Meg Tamulonis, volunteer curator of the Archives, discusses how these objects mark various milestones, from Pride events to legal rulings, and considers why some parts of the queer community aren’t well-represented in the Archives. She’ll explain why there aren’t many artifacts from the era before the Stonewall Uprising in 1969, and some of the ways we can continue to gather and learn about Vermont’s many queer histories.
This talk is free, open to the public, and accessible to those with disabilities. A ZOOM option will be available, reach out to program_assis[email protected] for a link or to request any other accommodations.
