Stepping Out of Line: Exploring LGBTQ Activism

Our understanding of history comes from many sources, not the least of which are the records and manuscripts that document the events and personalities we consider historic. “Stepping Out of Line” explores both documented and emerging histories from the LGBT collections and University Archives in the Stuart A. Rose Library. 

This exhibit explores LGBTQ history through four lenses:

  • “Queering Emory: in response to heteronormativity on campus

  • “Acting up” in response to the HIV/AIDS crisis

  • “Allying together” in response to chronic disadvantage and discrimination

  •  “Voicing their stories” in response to marginalization of trans and GNC communities
