Celebrating 100 Years: The Centennial Exhibition


One of the notable themes in the Library's current Centennial exhibition is Gay and Lesbian history.  Items on view include GMHC's safe sex packets, early issues of the lesbian journal The Ladder,  a pamphlet from the Mattachine Society, and a signed copy of Wilde's Ballad of Reading Gaol. Check out the exhibition curator, Thomas Mellins, discussing Ballad of Reading Gaol, as well as an important print documenting early feminist movements in England.
