The OutMuseum is the first LGBTQ+ arts and media virtual museum of its kind - available free to the public. Home to a combination of rotating and permanent exhibits centering themes, identities, and experiences which celebrate and commemorate the queer and trans communities we serve as an organization, the OutMuseum places the telling of our past, present, and future into the hands of those who have lived this past, are surviving its present and will be imagining a thriving future for it. Through short film collections, panels and roundtables, oral histories, and other multimedia within our slate of exhibits, this space offers the ability to foster discussions, increase access to art and information, and, most importantly, speak to histories that are regularly omitted from the record. Because what is history, if not storytelling? And it is all available for free!
