On February 26th, PFLAG Portland Black Chapter presented its Black LGBTQ History Project at Portland State University. The event was titled “REMEMBER OUR PAST & BUILDING TOWARDS OUR FUTURE: The Past & Future of the Black LGBTQ Movement.”

In honor of National Black History Month, PFLAGers presented video clips of interviews with Black LGBTQ elders. Around the room, posters displayed the timeline of Oregon’s Black LGBTQ History.

Reported by George T. Nicola over here at PQ Monthly, “Award winning graphics designer Rupert Kinnard created much of the printed content. Also helping facilitate the content were GLAPN President Robin Will and GLAPN videographer Daniel Spiro.”

Check out great clips of PFLAGers interviewing Black LGBTQ elders. They can be viewed here.

PFLAG National extends its gratitude to PFLAG Portland Black Chapter’s coordinator, Khalil Edwards, for organizing this great event. By all accounts, it was a successful and educational evening!
