LGBTQ+ Memorials: Design and Remembrance in the Landscape

Start Date
06/17/2021
End Date
06/17/2021
Description
Public memorials help us remember and keep alive past events, stories, and loss. Only recently are LGBTQ+ histories, spaces, and places being honored and remembered in the landscape. In cities such as NYC and San Francisco, stories of LGBTQ+ community, those who survived the HIV/AIDS crisis, and those we have lost deserve to be honored and remembered. This panel discussion is focused on the role and importance of the act of remembering and healing, particularly in situ. Our speakers will discuss how we currently memorialize LGBTQ+ history, and ideas for properly remembering and honoring the LGBTQ+ community into the future. Case studies such as the NYC AIDS Memorial will be discussed, as well as other place-based and living memorials.
