Los Angeles, CA, History Within Us

January 27 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm EST

History Within Us will include a digital zine on lesbian publications in the 1960s and 1970s, an investigation into the impact of corporate funding on grassroots LGBTQ+ activism, and a deep dive into LGBTQ+ student organizations in colleges and high schools, and more. The installation will also include a “Letters to ONE” display, featuring students’ responses to archival letters sent by ONE Magazine readers in the 1950s and 1960s. Visitors are invited to view the exhibition while enjoying light refreshments, including rainbow and transgender flag-colored conchas from the LGBTQ-allied Los Angelitos Bakery.

RSVP for the free event at oneinstitute.org/history-within-us/ 

During the event, leaders from Los Angeles County and the City of West Hollywood — including Third District Supervisor Lindsey Horvath, City of West Hollywood Mayor John Erickson, City of West Hollywood Vice Mayor Chelsea Byers, and members of the City of West Hollywood Transgender Advisory Board — will honor this year’s cohort with certificates for their successful completion of the program, as well as their exemplary leadership skills and commitment to civic engagement.

“Learning about queer history is really important to me and has inspired me to take action in my community through sharing the knowledge I have gained,” said Youth Ambassador JoJo (age 16). Adds Joshua (17), “We’re becoming more unapologetically ourselves. We keep fighting for our rights through protest, love, and art.”
