Exhibit & music fest to commemorate LGBTQ History Month in Fort Lauderdale

Empowering songs from the 70s and an exhibit depicting LGBTQ history are featured at events in Fort Lauderdale, and they are free.

The events in October are ideal for participating in LGBTQ History Month.

This LGBTQ History Month, we take time to recognize and honor the many trailblazers who made progress so that we can continue activism efforts today — from those at The Stonewall Rebellion (1969) like Marsha P. Johnson and Sylvia Rivera; to activists like Bayard Rustin and artists like Audre Lorde. 

Follow The Yellow Brick Road exhibit at Stonewall National Museum and Archives


Art Exhibit

The “Follow The Yellow Brick Road” exhibit is open from October 7 to November 25, 2022 at Stonewall National Museum and Archives, 1300 E. Sunrise Boulevard, Fort Lauderdale, FL. The opening event is 6 p.m. on October 7, 2022 – which includes a guided walk of the display. 

Sounds of Sisterhood music festival

Sounds of Sisterhood performances are from 6 p.m. – 9 p.m. on October 14, 2022, and feature women’s music from music festivals of the 70s. The event includes live entertainment from a variety of performers and food vendors. Bring a drum if you want to join a drum circle! The event is free, but donations are accepted.
