    Finding Each Other in History: Stories from LGBTQ+ Durham features personal narratives that illustrate how LGBTQ people in Durham have a long, but often invisible, history of overcoming adversity to form a community. It blends oral history and displayed artifacts; objects accompany oral history segments shared with visitors via individual mp3 players.

    The opening reception includes food provided by Nosh, beverages by Bull City Ciderworks (for ages 21 & over w/valid ID), and the live music of Makin’ Ends Meet, while guests mingle under the gazebo. Meet curator Luke Hirst and learn about the treasure trove of LGBTQ+ history in the Durham County Library’s North Carolina Collection. This Third Friday Durham event is FREE and open to the public.
