Life Letters - Exhibition

Presented by Stonewall National Museum & Archives at Stonewall National Museum and Archives

Contained within our Archives of the personal papers of many people from South Florida.  Within those papers are notes and communications between partners, family members and friends.  Some of those papers date back to the middle of the 20th century.

In this exhibition, we will exhibit and explore this correspondence and examine how these individuals communicated with each other, terms and language they used, along with coding and hidden meanings within the correspondence.  It will provide an opportunity for today’s generation to reflect on their own communication about their sexual orientation through the words, notes and interactions of another generation.

Letters of well-known LGBTQ individuals which can be found in our library will also be used in this exhibition.

Opening Friday, October 2, 2020 in the Charles L. Ross Gallery. On exhibition until Friday, January 1, 2021.
