This event looks cool. I love things like this where people empower themselves rather than rely on institutions to create things like museums, libraries, and archives. I also love the pop-up/ephemeral nature of it.
The Pop-Up Museum of Queer History
Friday, January 14 at 5:00pm - January 15 at 12:00am

207 Starr St.
The Pop-Up Museum of Queer History is an extravaganza of queer self-determination, a showcase of art "exhibits" on queer historical topics. We seek to realize our own representations of queer history, because in light of the recent censorship of David Wojnarovicz's work at the National Portrait Gallery, we cannot wait around for mainstream and heterosexual institutions to get it right. We look to each other for learning and self-education! We are compiling a resources list that all visitors can take home.
