Pride in Place – Call for Submissions


We need your help in uncovering the rich history of the 2SLGBTQIA+ in Greater Vernon!

We are seeking expressions of interest from potential contributors to help tell this story through objects, documents, photographs, and audio/visual materials in their care. These collected stories will be presented in a public exhibition jointly coordinated and curated by UBC Okanagan Library, Special Collections and Archives and the Museum and Archives of Vernon. This project is partly funded by the UBC Okanagan Partnership Recognition and Exploration Fund.

Here’s where you come in.

We are asking folks to look around their homes for books, papers, pictures, recordings, or anything else that relates to the 2SLGBTQIA+ community in the Okanagan Valley.

Discover with pride, and if you have any questions about the items in your care, or the project in general, please don’t hesitate to contact Submission deadline is September 23, 2022. 

Have fun and happy digging!
