AARP St. Louis is proud to sponsor the Missouri History Museum's multi-year virtual exhibit - Gateway to Pride.
LGBT+ communities have been contributing to St. Louis’ history for centuries. The Gateway to Pride virtual exhibit uncovers the rarely shared and often untold stories of St. Louis’s LGBT+ communities. AARP is honored to take part in celebrating and sharing this rich history.
Visitors to the Gateway to Pride virtual exhibit will get a taste of St. Louis’ fascinating LGBT+ history. The interactive digital experience showcases oral history interviews, artifacts with in-depth stories, and multiple opportunities for online visitors to share their own experiences.
This virtual exhibit is a milestone step in the Missouri Historical Society’s larger Gateway to Pride Initiative. It serves as a call to action for visitors to share their stories and contribute to the growing knowledge of this often hidden history.
