Share Your Love Story: Story Exchange + Pop-Up Exhibit
HistoryMiami Museum and Miami Beach Gay Pride are hosting an engaging workshop inspired by the Legacy Couples Project: 400+ Years of LGBTQ Love exhibition. Attendees are encouraged to bring a meaningful item that reflects the themes of love and relationships. During the story exchange, participants will share the story inspired by their object, and together, will create a pop-up exhibition to be displayed during the event.
Legacy Couples Project: 400+ Years of LGBTQ Love features on-camera interviews, personal memorabilia, and audio-recorded stories told to four queer youth from the YES Institute. The exhibition brings to light a community’s story of struggle, perseverance, love, and hope told through the stories of 14 same-sex couples. The stories of these couples, all residents in Miami-Dade County, span multiple eras and are central to the broader telling of LGBTQ history in the United States.
This program is free to attend, but registration is required. Funding for this program is provided in part through a Florida Humanities Community Project Grant in partnership with Miami Beach Gay Pride, Inc.
Date/time: June 25 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
