This educational exhibit highlights New Hope Celebrates’ commitment to honoring the historic contributions made by gay individuals to Bucks County’s diverse, welcoming community through showcasing LGBTQ+ community from the past five decades.
Hosted by Visit Bucks County, 3207 Street Road, Bensalem (located next to PARX Casino), through March 23rd, it will be open to the public daily from 9:00am to 5:00pm, seven days a week.
The exhibit celebrates the 50th year anniversary of the Stonewall Riots in New York City that led to annual global Gay Pride parades and marches.
These activities eventually contributed to the enactment of equal rights legislation as well as the legalization of gay marriage in the US.
To commemorate this event, the Equality Exhibit will showcase the gay experience of New Hope, juxtaposed to national events that occurred in gay culture during the late 1960s through present day.
It’s a colorful glimpse into the past, featuring images, artifacts, and information, highlighted by the stories of local individuals who have made meaningful contributions to New Hope and Bucks County’s LGBTQ+ community.
In addition, New Hope Celebrates is honored to host the premiere of the PA LGBT History Network’s Equal Rights Display.
The exhibit is under the direction of Daniel Brooks, NHC & NHCH Founder.
Designed and produced by Gordon Pulaski, NHC’s Creative Director.
