Three Centuries of LGBTQ+ History in the Mid-Atlantic @ Sandy Spring Museum
Feb 28 @ 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm
Three Centuries of LGBTQ+ History in the Mid-Atlantic @ Sandy Spring Museum |  |  |

Long before Pride parades and Supreme Court arguments over Marriage Equality, LGBTQ+ people have been part of the fabric of American life. In this program by Dr. Christopher Mielke and local historian Ron Padrón, we will look at the hidden queer history of colonial America and the young Republic. Through documented histories of queer and gender non-conforming individuals, our speakers will cover the evolution of gender and sexuality in the mid-Atlantic over three centuries, and challenges face by Revolutionary War generals, African American schoolteachers and female husbands, among others.
