If you’re in San Diego, come visit the San Diego History Center in Balboa Park for the exhibit LGBTQ+ San Diego: Stories of Struggles and Triumphs. This exhibit, curated by me, is the first-ever LGBTQ exhibit in Balboa Park and one of the first major LGBTQ exhibits in the country. I’m very excited about it! It’s scheduled to run from July 2018 to January 2020.
