The MAH is excited to debut components of its ongoing Queerstory project—a digitization effort of local LGBTQ+ materials— on Friday, October 6 from 2-4pm at the MAH. The event will feature educational and interactive history trunks along with a preview of a new online public access portal that showcases archival materials from the Santa Cruz County LGBTQ+ Collection.

The event includes special guest speakers, including California State Senator John Laird and Santa Cruz County Third District Supervisor Justin Cummings.

Launched in 2022, Queerstory is a two-year effort that aims to digitize, publish online, and promote a collection of photographs, printed materials, and audiovisual components that document LGBTQ+ leaders, communities, activism, and triumphs in Santa Cruz County from 1974 to present. A collaboration with the Diversity Center of Santa Cruz County, who donated much of the collection, the project is made possible through a generous preservation and accessibility grant from the California State Library.
