A Visual Journey: From AIDS to Marriage Equality

NUVO Image

This traveling exhibit celebrates 30 years of LGBT history as seen through the lens of photographer Mark A. Lee. His photographs give visitors a front row seat to events, both public and private, that shaped the lives of many Hoosiers. "A Visual Journey: From AIDS to Marriage Equality documents members of the AIDS community, past and present Bag Ladies, members of Pride, and those who fought for marriage equality," said Lee. "It also pays tribute to five very special people who are no longer here (for reasons other than AIDS) and takes a sneak peek into our future, as it takes a closer look at the transgender community."

The traveling exhibit, sponsored by Eli Lilly and Company and Cummins, also highlights IHS's work with the Indiana LGBT Collecting Initiative. First announced in 2014, the initiative includes oral histories, photographs and research materials donated to the IHS archives. The Indiana LGBT Collecting Initiative is supported by the Efroymson Family Fund and a grant from The Indianapolis Foundation, a CICF affiliate.
