This traveling exhibit, on display June 6 - July 7, is sponsored by Eli Lilly and Company and Cummins. It celebrates 30 years of LGBT history as seen through the lens of photographer Mark A. Lee. His photographs give visitors a front row seat to events, both public and private, that shaped the lives of many Hoosiers. The exhibit also highlights the Indiana Historical Society’s work with the Indiana LGBT Collecting Initiative. First announced in 2014, the Initiative includes oral histories, photographs and research materials donated to the IHS archives. The Indiana LGBT Collecting Initiative is supported by the Efroymson Family Fund and a grant from The Indianapolis Foundation, a CICF affiliate.
"A Visual Journey: From AIDS to Marriage Equality" also pays tribute to five very special people who are no longer here (for reasons other than AIDS) and takes a sneak peek into our future, while taking a closer look at the transgender community.
