Wyoming certainly has its place in LGBT history. Now, it will serve as a place where LGBT history in the West can be chronicled, as well.
The University of Wyoming's American Heritage Center has a new archive "Out West In The Rockies," which spotlights LGBT history in the American West.
Wyoming Public Radio's Caroline Ballard sat down with the co-creator of the archive, Gregory Hinton, who spent his childhood in Wyoming and Montana. Hinton will be speaking about the archive and his own experience growing up in the West at the Sheridan Fulmer Library at 6:30pm Wednesday.
On September 18th and 19th the University of Wyoming American Heritage Center and a number of sponsors will be hosting what should be a fascinating symposium on Immigration. Leslie Waggener with the American Heritage Center explains the purpose of the symposium.
