Historic Timeline of Connecticut’s LGBTQ Community Panel Exhibit

Tuesday, May 23 at 10:00 am - Friday, June 30 at 5:00 pm

On Display at Avon Free Public Library’s 1st Floor Reference Area Atrium

Tuesday, May 23, 2023 – Friday, June 30, 2023 (During Open Library Hours)

Throughout history, Connecticut’s LGBTQ population has moved from leading hidden, solitary lives to claiming visible, powerful, valuable, and contributing places in society. The banner timeline explores the history of that experience: stories of oppression and resilience, tragedy and triumph.

An interactive scavenger hunt will be available for exploring!

The panel project is a partnership with the Connecticut Historical Society and Central Connecticut State University.

A companion digital timeline of Connecticut’s LGBTQ history is also available online at chs.org/lgbtq.

For more in depth information, join us for “Connecticut’s Remarkable LGBTQ History: Virtual Event with Professor William Mann” on Tuesday, May 30, 2023 from 7 – 8 pm on Zoom.
