Publicly Identified: Coming Out Activist in the Queen City
Organized as a timeline of Charlotte history, this new exhibit was curated by UNC Charlotte assistant director for sexual and gender diversity Joshua Burford and features selections from the J. Murrey Atkins Special Collections
The exhibit breaks new ground as it documents and preserves a chapter of Charlotte's history not previously told and it will become a permanent part of the LGBT archive at the University after it is presented at the Museum.
