Making History: The Rise of Gay Rights in Kansas City

This traveling pop-up exhibition explores the activism of gays and lesbians in the decades before 1969, including Kansas City’s surprisingly pivotal role in helping to launch America’s gay rights movement.

Curated by students in the University of Missouri-Kansas City’s public history program. A digital companion to the display is available here: UMKC’s Making History: Kansas City and the Rise of Gay Rights.
