How exciting to have a place of our own at the San Diego History Center. The History Center, in partnership with the Lambda Archives, brings the first exhibition ever in Balboa Park, focused on San Diego’s LGBTQ+ community. This is the History Center’s major exhibition. It opened July 8, 2018 and will continue until January, 2020.
Visitors will hear from those in the LGBTQ+ region about the struggles to overcome persecution, the battle with AIDS, bullying and intolerance and the power of the community coming together and within growing activism and community engagement. Specifically for this exhibition, the History Center arranged for the rare display of a portion of the AIDS Quilt, with significance to our region.
The museum is open daily from 9:00 am-5:00 pm. There is no traditional museum fee, but you are kindly asked to donate $10. The second Tuesday of each month is free to San Diego County residents (proof required). The location is 1649 El Prado in Balboa Park. It is next to the Museum of Photographic Arts at the east end of El Prado near the Ruben H. Fleet Science Center and the San Diego History Museum.
I live at the top of the state, close to Oregon. Thinking of moving to your area and just wanted to know how to contact you. I am a lesbian.
