LGBT Pride in NYC
MetadataShow full item record
Series/Report no.:Ohio State University. STEP Expo. Autumn 2018
This June I travelled to New York City for the first time to learn more about the history of the LGBTQ+ community so that I could feel more confident in my identity as a transgender man and develop my ability to have educational conversations with others about my community. During this week in the Big Apple, my project partner and I visited the National AIDS Memorial, the LGBT Community Center of New York, Stonewall Inn, the Leslie-Lohman Museum of Gay and Lesbian Art, the Lesbian HerStory Archives, AND we had the opportunity to attend one of the biggest pride festivals and marches in the world. Engaging with the history and being surrounded by the positivity in each of these spaces has re-inspired me to continue to embrace my identity and be proud of who I am.
