    Coming Out, Affecting Change
    The Virginia Museum of History and Culture has updated their signature exhibit, “The Story of Virginia”, to include pieces from the LGBTQ Civil Rights Movement. The enhancements consist of documents and memorabilia from VHMC’s growing LGBTQ historical archive. The exhibit presents an incredible opportunity to educate the public about the decades of persecution the LGBTQ community has faced, and to highlight the incredible successes of some of the figures at the forefront of the movement. In addition, the museum is collaborating with LGBTQ+ communities to document these important stories by collecting oral histories, images, documents, and artifacts.
