Florida Queer History: A Pride Extravaganza
October 15 @ 3:00 pm - 7:00 pm
The Samuel Proctor Oral History Program’s (SPOHP) Florida Queer History Project is partnering with First Magnitude Brewing Company to bring “A Pride Extravaganza” on October 15, 3-7pm!
The event will serve as a fundraiser for SPOHP’s Florida Queer History Project (oral history, documentaries, digital humanities, and public humanities!), which will be exhibiting a portrait and oral history interview series from their June 2017 research trip to document Pride weekend in Washington, DC. The event will include a resource fair with local organizations and LGBTQ+ community allies from 3-5PM. There will be live music from Gutless, Bird Eat Bird, and drag performances by Mx Bubbles, Rose Chamellion, Salí de la Rosa, and Elena La Fuega from 5-7PM.
The Florida Queer History Project includes fieldwork, oral history collection and curation, documentary production, digital humanities projects that are building upon the collected and created resources, and public humanities outreach with events like this and other means to engage communities in cultural and scholarly production.
Wristbands and tickets are available for presale and will be available at the door. Tickets can be redeemed for a free beer at the event, and wristbands allow attendees to get fifty cents off every beer purchase. Presale items can be purchased in the SPOHP office on the second floor of Pugh Hall from office manager Tamarra Jenkins.
