LGBT people in the Old West, May 13

New, comments

For those in Los Angeles, a cool event honoring gays and lesbians in the Old West on May 13, co-hosted by The Front Runner author Patricia Nell Warren, who is an Old West historian...

Discover the untold stories of the Western LGBT community on this progressive gallery tour as scholars and Autry curators tell the hidden stories behind some of the objects on display. The Autry’s second program in its Out West series delves into uncharted territory highlighting accounts of individuals who lived gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender lives from the 1800s to modern times in the American West. With this step, the Autry boldly adds the overlooked stories of the western LGBT community as yet another dimension of multicultural convergence in the scholarship of Western American history.
