History Café: Protest, Pride, & Community: Representing LGBTQ+ Stories in the NYSM Collection


The NYS Museum event History Café: Protest, Pride & Community: Representing LGBTQ+ Stories in the NYSM Collection will be held at The Hollow Bar + Kitchen on October 22 at 6:00 PM.

Free event | Adults

New York State History is rich in stories of LGBTQ+ individuals, their accomplishments, and the fight for equality. Until recently though, these stories were drastically underrepresented in the New York State Museum’s collections. Join NYS senior historian Ashley Hopkins-Benton to learn about the LGBTQ+ artifacts the Museum currently has, the hidden stories we have coaxed out of our collection, and how we will work to grow the collection in the future.

This program is free and located at The Hollow Bar + Kitchen in downtown Albany, New York. Food and drink will be available for purchase. For more information, call (518) 474-0575 or visit www.nysm.nysed.gov
