Preservation Maryland has made uncovering LGBTQ history in Maryland a priority project through our Six-to-Fix program. Today, the 50th Anniversary of the riots at the Stonewall Inn in New York City that marks a major turning point in the fight for LGBTQ equality, Preservation Maryland is proud to share what we have found about Maryland’s LGBTQ history.
Over the course of a studio semester, students from the University of Maryland College Park have created a new public toolkit for documentation LGBTQ history in Baltimore City with a specific focus on Mount Vernon, Abell, Waverly, and Greater Waverly.
As a part of our ongoing work in LGBTQ history, Preservation Maryland is excited to announce a week of five upcoming listening sessions across the state to help inform a forthcoming context study on LGBTQ history across the state.
As part of statewide project and organizational focus, Preservation Maryland is pleased to offer a quick research reference guide for conducting LGBTQ history at colleges, universities, and other small archives.
