ABOUT THE EXHIBIT
Recently, the West Virginia & Regional History Center has acquired a significant resource of national and state significance in regards to LGBTQ+ history - a collection of DRAG magazines, edited by Lee Greer Brewster (who was raised in West Virginia).
To mark LGBTQ+ History Month (October, Dr. Charlotte Hoelke (Assistant Director of the WVU Women's Resource Center) explains the historical significance of these magazines (two of which are displayed in this exhibit). Brewster contributed to LGBTQ+ organizing in New York City in the 1960s-1980s. Dr. Hoelke is currently researching Brewster's life and legacy.
