About the exhibits:

Journey to Equality: The History of the LGBTQ Civil Rights Movement chronicles the LGBTQ civil rights movement from the 1940s through the 2000s. The Library began the exhibit with 10 panels. Each month new panels outlining significant events will be added to the exhibit so viewers can experience the ongoing journey to equality. By February, 2018, all of the panels will be on display.

In honor of the 30 year anniversary or the ACT UP movement, the library has a smaller exhibit titled Acting Up to Fight AIDS: Remembering the ACT UP movement 30 Years Later, which examines the AIDS epidemic in the 1980s and the role of ACT UP to bring awareness to the AIDS crises.
