Speaking of inclusion…I’m From Driftwood is really excited to be a part of the upcoming Pop-Up Museum of Queer History. In addition to trying to help queer youth feel not so alone in the world, I’ve always seen IFD as a sort of archive of our history. We’ll be sharing Video Stories from older folks who give first-person accounts of what queer life was like in the 50s and 60s. Hugh Ryan, the project’s curator who also wrote his own IFD story, explains:
The Pop-Up Museum of Queer History transforms empty spaces into temporary installations on the rich, long, and largely unknown histories of LGBT people. We believe our community – and especially our youth – deserve to know the truth. If you don’t know you have a past, how can you believe you have a future?

The museum will open in early August.
