Members and friends of the Committee on LGBT History attending the AHA annual meeting are invited to join the Committee on Saturday, January 8, from 6:30-8 pm at The History Project, Boston’s LGBTQ community history project. Founded in 1980 by local activists, archivists, and historians, THP has been a pioneer in documenting LGBTQ community history, from a diverse range of exhibits to its full-length book, Improper Bostonians. On Saturday evening, THP volunteers will discuss their current exhibits and projects, and take questions from those in attendance.
The History Project is located at 29 Stanhope St. (on the fourth floor of the Living Center), about a ten-minute walk from the Boston Marriott Copley Place. Please meet us by the registration desk at the Marriott by 6:15 pm, and we will walk over as a group to The History Project. Members and friends of the Committee on LGBT History are also welcome to meet us at THP; if you are walking or taking other transit on your own to THP, please call upstairs (617-266-7733) to make sure someone can let you inside the building, in case the front door is locked.
After the event, some of us will go across the street for drinks at Club Cafe, one of Boston’s most popular LGBTQ nightspots.
No reservations required, although if you are planning to attend, please email Ian Lekus so that he can provide a rough estimate to The History Project as to how many people to expect.
