Yesterday our co-director Andrew Dolkart spoke to students and faculty at the Royal Institute of Art in Stockholm, Sweden on the importance of documenting LGBT historic sites and making this history visible to the general public through our interactive website. It’s always a great opportunity to reach out to our friends overseas! See the event listing.
Andrew was co-author of the Stonewall nomination to the National Register of Historic Places in 1999 and, in the past year, has authored the nomination for Julius’ bar and the amended nomination for the Alice Austen House. The latter two nominations are part of our ongoing efforts to recognize LGBT history on the National Register.
