Co-founder of the Gay and Lesbian Archive of Mid-America, Curator Stuart Hinds will trace the successes and setbacks in the struggle to secure civil rights for the American LGBTQ community since the end of the second World War. The course will examine the national movement and well-known events like the Stonewall Uprising, as well as national figures like Harvey Milk and Rita Mae Brown. In addition, we will shed light on stories from Kansas City’s queer community that had significant influence on the history of the city as well as the national narrative, drawn from the collections of the Gay and Lesbian Archive housed at UMKC’s Miller Nichols Library.
