About the Roadshow
See an exhibit of historical photographs, documents, artifacts, and video clips of oral history interviews from the LGBT Center of Central PA History Project collection that tells stories of LGBT history from right here in this region. This event also provides an opportunity for LGBTQ+ visitors, their families and friends to bring in their own personal LGBT history collections to have them scanned or photographed by staff of The State Library of Pennsylvania so that digital copies are made available to the History Project. Visitors may also keep their own digital copy by bringing in a USB thumb drive to download the files. Visitors may choose to donate the original items to the History Project or keep them. All photographs, paper documents or 3 dimensional artifacts need to have some connection to LGBT history in Pennsylvania. Visitors may also sign up for oral history interviews to be conducted by the History Project.

This event is presented by The State Library of Pennsylvania in partnership with the Pennsylvania Commission on LGBTQ Affairs and the LGBT Center of Central PA History Project. Please direct any questions about collections you want to bring to the event, to history@centralpalgbtcenter.org, or general questions about the event to Ellen Shenk at ellshenk@pa.gov.
