HistoryMiami Dives Into Miami's LGBTQ History

Miami's place in LGBTQ history is often overlooked. But from its earliest days as an untamed, fantastical playground for the rich to its emergence as an ever-changing global mecca, the city has been the setting for moments of both triumph and defeat in the slow march toward gay equality — moments that had profound implications beyond the city's borders. These moments form the backbone of an exhibit opening Saturday, March 16, at HistoryMiami. Curated by Julio Capó Jr., "Queer Miami" traces the vibrant, untold history of the city's LGBTQ communities and the far-reaching impacts they've had over the years.
