Take a look at the intersection between Freelancers and LGBTQ issues in museums. How can freelancers support museums as inclusive and safer spaces? What LGBTQ guidelines or supports are in place for museums and museum employees? Can I get one of those Out for Safe Spaces badges? Join us at the historic Lesbian bar for this joint peer group meeting of Freelancers and LGTBQ+ and Allies. This is CASH ONLY.

There is a ramp entrance, but note the restroom is wheelchair inaccessible with handrails. The meeting will attempt a digital connection through Zoom, but the bar may be loud.
