Panels from the NAMES Project AIDS Memorial Quilt are on display in “Pride in the Library,” a special pop-up exhibit open to the public from June 8 through 10. Shown here are current and former Library staff members who constructed the Library’s section of the quilt to honor Library colleagues who died of AIDS during the height of the epidemic. In addition to the quilt, the exhibit showcases items from the Library’s collections that feature LGBTQ+ creators and representations of LGBTQ+ life in America and around the world.
If you’re in Washington, come to the Jefferson Building of the Library today or tomorrow between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. to see the fantastic display for yourself! But even if you’re not, you can read more about the pop-up display and LGBTQ+ resources at the Library of Congress on our Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Pride Month 2017 online presentation, which includes a master list of what collection items are currently on display in the exhibit.
