This event is a fundraiser for the Arizona LGBT+ History Project, an initiative to preserve stories and other archival materials that document the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT) history in Arizona. After centuries of cultural, social and legal oppression, the LGBT+ community has made tremendous gains toward equality in the past 50 years. However, much of the “official” history of the LGBT+ community is both scant and pejorative. The goal of the Arizona LGBT+ History Project is to gather stories of the people who once hid in the shadows.
