The Long Road to LGBTQ+ Equality In PA Traveling Exhibit

November 4 - 15, 2019 - The Long Road to LGBTQ+ Equality in Pennsylvania is a traveling history exhibit that chronicles the efforts that activists have undertaken in Pennsylvania to achieve full equality for LGBTQ+ people. Made possible by the Central PA LGBT Center, this exhibit tells these stories through historical narrative, photographs and video of oral history first person accounts of activists involved in the struggles to achieve protection from discrimination.
