On Tuesday, June 30th, the last day of Pride Month, the Rainbow History Project held a public information session at the Southeast Neighborhood Library. Board member Vincent Slatt discussed the history of the organization and our ongoing work, including our Community Pioneers programming, our online archives, our oral history program, and our Places & Spaces online map. Audience members were eager to share their questions, perspectives, and even some personal memories of LGBT spaces in the city.

We are eager to follow up with our audience members, several of whom expressed interest in sharing their own oral histories or volunteering with Rainbow History.
