Memphis LGBT Oral History Exhibit

Posted By on Tue, Mar 4, 2014 at 4:12 PM

The first exhibit of a three-part installation series on the history of Memphis' LGBT community opens this Friday, March 7th.

The "I Can't Give You Anything But Love" series traces the oral history of the community through diverse viewpoints and voices. Its first exhibit, "Sweet Tea," will feature five portraits of people who were interviewed for the project along with audio recordings of their interviews about the community's history. The original works and installations were created by Michael Braden.

Those who attend are encouraged to bring their smart phones and headphones to hear the oral histories. Sweet tea will be served. The opening runs from 5 to 6:30 p.m. at the Memphis Gay & Lesbian Community Center (892 S. Cooper).
