We Are Everywhere, Y’all: A Conversation About Preserving Trans Histories in Atlanta
The inaugural panel will explore the history and activism of Transgender communities in the Southeast, featuring Professor Kadji Amin of Emory University, DeeDee Chamblee of LaGender Inc, and archivist Morna Gerrard of Georgia State University’s Special Collections, moderated by project co-founder, Sam Landis.
About the project: The Atlanta LGBTQ+ History Project, is a multimedia exhibit and archival collection celebrating the lives of notable LGBTQ+ Atlantans from yesterday and today. The project will include a visual and oral history audio installation, digital exhibit, podcast, and panel series.
The project gathers oral histories, photographs, and other archival material from LGBTQ+ Atlantans who have reshaped the city’s identity as an epicenter of LGBTQ+ life and culture in the Southeast. Honored subjects include politicians, activists, artists, religious leaders, and business owners. All materials will be donated to Georgia State University Special Collections, to be archived with the university’s extensive LGBTQ+ history collection.
