A talk from Marvin Kabakoff, PhD, retired archivist from the National Archives and board member at The History Project.
The presentation will provide a quick review of LGBTQ history, mostly from Stonewall on, but also discussing what life was like before Stonewall. Dr. Kabakoff will talk about the modern LGBTQ movement, how AIDS impacted our community, and on the gains we've made in the past 50 years, and also about the problems that still exist.
Dr. Kabakoff will include some specific Boston things, but also make us aware of life outside the Massachusetts bubble. He will also talk about the importance of documenting our history, about the collections at the History Project, and on how they are used.
Dr. Kabakoff has been involved with the gay movement since the early ’70s. He currently chairs the Rainbow Committee at Temple Sinai in Brookline.
