Meyerson Hall, Upper Gallery 

Change Over Time is pleased to announce the launch of issue 8.2 LGBTQ Heritage. Published to coincide with of the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall uprising, this issue explores the theoretical and practical dimensions of preserving the sites and places of an historically invisible and transient history. By employing a variety of disciplinary methods to identify, document, and interpret LGBTQ heritage, the contributors to this issue demonstrate inclusive conservation practices and challenge the architectural biases of existing preservation criteria. While the journal theme is focused upon LGBTQ heritage, the challenges discussed are relevant to historically under-represented communities whose contributions and places of meaning, though often overlooked, remain integral to our public history and built environments. 

Join us on November 5 for a panel discussion moderated by Ken Lustbader, Co-Director of the NYC LGBT Historic Sites Project. Presented by the Graduate Program in Historic Preservation and the Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender Center. Advance registration will be required by October 28. Refreshments will be served.
