The theme for Dublin Pride 2021 is Community, with a focus on promoting the vital work of LGBTQ+ organizations and services. Inspired by the Annual International Pride Photo Award contest, this Summer the Dublin Center will celebrate Pride through a different lens: a camera lens.
Photos (with permission) will be posted to the Center’s Instagram and other social media platforms. Those students who would like to earn a Co-Curricular Learning Certificate can also write a reflective piece on what this photo says to them. Full information on the Arcadia University Co-Curricular Learning Certificate can be found online.
In honor of Pride, Intern Philly hosted Bob Skiba, curator of the John J. Wilcox Archives of Philadelphia, for a discussion on what it was like to be queer in America in the 1950's and 60's. He also explored Philadelphia's unique response to that period by staging the Annual Reminder demonstrations every July 4 from 1965 to 1969 in front of Independence Hall—the first organized, regularly occuring protests for gay rights in the states, even before Stonewall.
