Spring Lecture Series: Representing Queer Voices through Archives, Museums, and Collections

Join the Commission for LGBT People and the Pride Center for the first entry in our spring lecture series, "Representing Queer Voices through Archives, Museums, and Collections" from Donna Braquet (she/hers) and Sadie Count (she/hers). 

Lecture description: Donna will discuss her work with Voices Out Loud, a project to collect, preserve, and share Knoxville and East Tennessee’s LGBTQ+ history. She will share ways that she has worked with community members and organizations to begin to piece together our local queer culture. Donna will also discuss ways that students have been a part of co-creating the archive through practicums, independent studies, and a one-credit course. Sadie will reflect on her use of the Voices Out Loud archive’s Metropolitan Community Church Knoxville and oral history collections for her Master’s thesis in Anthropology. She will also discuss her plans for an upcoming Queer History exhibit at the McClung Museum on campus.
