I made this! A Queer Timeline at the Bentley Historical Library

In addition to Singapore and Uganda this last Summer, I also had an internship at The Bentley Historical Library.  My job at the Bentley was to create an exhibit that focused on the collections.  In discussions with my mentor there, Reference Librarian Karen Jania, a timeline exhibit of GLBTQ history had never been done and so that became my project.  Today, Coming Out Day, was the reception for the event.  It was an intimate crowd which was fun.  The physical exhibit is up for October and November.  The digital exhibit however will be up for far longer than that and is still a little bit under construction.  I had a lot of fun working on this exhibit, both in the researching and in the putting together.  It's nice to see it all coming together!
