Upcoming Events

HistoryMiami Museum is Launching Queer Miami: A History of LGBTQ Communities

Gay and Lesbian, Living History
Queer Miami: A History of LGBTQ Communities, curated by Miami native and history professor Julio Capó Jr., will chronicle Miami’s queer past, reflecting its gender and sexual diversity for over one hundred years. Through artifacts, photographs, archival footage, and more, the exhibition will display the stories of Miami’s queer communities who, despite discrimination, isolation, and violence, managed to carve out spaces for themselves and made their voices heard in southern Florida. The exhibition opens Saturday, March 15 at HistoryMiami Museum.
Queer Miami will be HistoryMiami Museum’s featured exhibition for the 2019-2020 calendar. Displayed in the museum’s 5,000 square foot gallery, Queer Miami will address topics such as: policing and criminalization, community development, advocacy and activism, immigration and the AIDS crisis, and what the future holds for Miami’s queer community. Visitors will be able to see memorabilia from some of Miami’s oldest gay bars, photographs of rallies and marches, archival material from Anita Bryant’s “Save Our Children” campaign, historical footage, and original video interviews from the people involved in creating Miami’s LGBTQ communities. Interactive components will encourage visitors to contribute their own story to the exhibition.
HistoryMiami Museum will open the exhibition with a preview party on Friday, March 15 at 6 pm. The opening event will feature live music, performances, complimentary beverages, and more. Tickets are $10 or free with pre-registration. Visit bit.ly/queer-miami-party to reserve your spot.
