Queens’ role in LGBT history is the focus of a new exhibit at the Queens Museum.
“The Lavender Line: Coming Out in Queens” looks at LGBT activism in the borough dating back to the early 90s.
Many pieces in the exhibit come from the personal archives of City Councilman Danny Dromm, who founded the Queens Pride Parade.
“It’s going to be across the board, the history of the last 25 years of the history of the LGBT movement in Queens. Which a lot of people don’t know about. There’s been activism here, and our own unique history here in the borough of Queens,” said City Councilman Daniel Dromm.
The exhibit coincides with the 25th anniversary of the Queens Pride Parade, which was celebrated in Jackson Heights last Sunday.
