Recent census data suggests that the Twin Cities metro has one of the larger concentrations of same sex couples between the coasts, causing The Advocate, in 2013, to proclaim the Twin Cities "a Midwestern gay mecca." But this is only one part of a much larger and deeper queer history that historians, archivists, and activists are working to preserve and bring to broader public attention. From the University of Minnesota Jean-Nickolaus Tretter Collection in Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender Studies, to Stewart Van Cleve's Land of 10,000 Loves: A Queer History of Minnesota, many are discovering queer history and queering the history we've already discovered. Join this discussion to hear from those who are committed to sharing this important history - and from those who have lived it.
