CARNEGIE MELLON EVENT CALENDAR

Pittsburgh Queer History Project: Lucky After Dark

Apr 29, 2014
4:30 PM
Giant Eagle Auditorium, Baker Hall


Carnegie Mellon's Center for the Arts in Society (CAS) will host the Pittsburgh Queer History Project's inaugural event, a lecture on "Lucky After Dark" by CMU's Timothy Haggerty and Harrison Apple. Directed by Haggerty and CAS artist-in-residence Harrison Apple, a 2013 graduate of CMU's Intercollege Degree Program, the Pittsburgh Queer History Project is an oral history and media preservation initiative dedicated to investigating and revealing queer life histories and community formations in Pittsburgh. The "Lucky After Dark" lecture will preview a June 2014 exhibit of the same name that will explore the role after-hours nightlife in postwar Pittsburgh played in establishing and shaping gay and lesbian identities.
