About the exhibit

LGBTQIA+ people have been part of St. Louis from the beginning. But until recently, their lives, struggles, and contributions have often been overlooked. In Gateway to Pride, the Missouri History Museum will present the first-ever full-scale exhibit on St. Louis’s fascinating and powerfully relevant LGBTQIA+ history.

The result of a community-driven, nearly decade-long collecting initiative, Gateway to Pride will showcase meaningful artifacts, striking images, and insightful oral histories. Through the exhibit, visitors will discover a surprising and revealing new perspective on the region’s past, and LGBTQIA+ St. Louisans will see themselves as central figures in their region’s history like never before.
