Connections: Discussing historic LGBTQ landmarks in Rochester

Jul 20, 2018

We're joined by members of the Landmark Society and the Out Alliance to talk about historic places in our community that have played a pivotal role in the LGBTQ movement. Those organizations are leading a new walking tour that is part of the Landmark Society's LGBTQ Landmark Initiative

We discuss the initiative and Rochester's contributions to the LGBTQ movement. In studio:

  • Larry Francer, associate director of preservation for the Landmark Society of Western NY
  • Wayne Goodman, executive director of the Landmark Society of Western NY
  • Carol Ebersole-Weiss, member of the national board of governors for the Human Rights Campaign, and western new coordinator of the Human Rights Campaign of Greater New York
  • Evelyn Bailey, historian for the Out Alliance
