The Hell We’ve Been Through
Discrimination against LGBTQ+ people in the United States is not a new phenomenon. The period of this exhibit, however, stretches from the 1960s to 2001. LGBTQ+ people in central Pennsylvania have experienced discrimination in all its forms, in employment, housing, education, public accommodations and in verbal and physical assaults. This exhibit is not a comprehensive database of LGBTQ discrimination in Central Pennsylvania. It does not privilege one group’s history over another. Rather, it reflects the current physical collection of the LGBT Center of Central PA History Project.
