On January 30th, 2020, Rose Library held its first drag show in the archive. The show helped Rose Library celebrate our LGBTQ collections. And thanks to Brook Hewitt of Rose Riot Photography, we have a way to share this amazing event! On behalf of Randy Gue, Curator of the Political, Cultural and Social Movements Collections at the Stuart A. Rose Library, we want to thank Lorelei, Rocky the Mermaid, Lori Divine, Tristan Panucci Dupree, and, all the way from New Orleans, Reba Douglas, for making our first drag show a success!
The Rose Library believes in innovative programming. We want to highlight the ways our collections connect to living cultures and subcultures that our students, guests, researchers, faculty, and staff can participate in. Join us as we explore Atlanta and its communities in unique ways! We hope you will follow along on our blog, website, and social media platforms to learn more about all of our upcoming programs!
