Explore the history and culture of Memphis’ LGBTQ+ community.

The Memphis Proud exhibit taps into the heart of the LGBTQ+ community in the Mid-South. The exhibit examines the history and culture of the city’s LGBTQ+ population and explores how LGBTQ+ Memphians of different backgrounds and experiences have come together to form thriving communities and provide powerful voices for change and acceptance in Memphis.

Through a large collection of local artifacts, photographs and stories, Memphis Proud tells the story of how our LGBTQ+ community responded to national challenges, such as the struggle for LGBTQ+ rights and the AIDS crisis, and the community’s unique successes and challenges.
