"Coming Out: 50 Years of Queer Resistance and Resilience in Silicon Valley" Exhibit

All Day
Cupertino Library

Description

An exhibit documenting 50 years of local LGBTQ history will be on display at Cupertino Library In Room 201B on the Second Floor. 

The exhibit is comprised of 18 large pop-up banners that contain much of the information that existed in the exhibit. Visitors will be able to read the stories and see the photos and artifacts captured on the 36x83 inches-tall banners spaced around the room.

Each of the 18 banners tell the unique story about the LGBTQ movement in Silicon Valley. Visitors can learn where all the gay bars used to be located, where all the Pride festivals have been held, activism in high-tech companies, violence against queer people, the backlash against the LGBTQ community in the 1980s, the devastation of AIDS, same-gender marriages, and claiming a seat at the political table. There are also banners telling the stories of organizations like the Billy DeFrank Community Center, Sisterspirit Bookstore, the Royal Court Balls, drag shows, leather community, and transgender history. Everyone is welcome to view the exhibit during the library's open hours.
