What would you like future generations to know about the El Paso LGBTQ+ community?
"Historias: Stories of El Paso - Pride Edition" features oral histories from members of the El Paso LGBTQIA+ community. This is an extension of our existing community curated exhibition that was unveiled a year ago on June 4, 2020.
Often when we think of history we think in terms of notable events and people made famous by those events. We do not think of the larger population and how they shaped and continue to shape those narratives. Historias is about everyone. It is about the experiences that shape and connect us to one another. We aim to share these stories from our community to highlight individual memories of life, traditions, people, and landscape.
