Equality - Pride in Our History Exhibit takes visitors on a journey through the decades of gay pride and will showcase a collection of stories, photos, memorabilia contributed by lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, questioning individuals and their allies (LGBTQA). This educational exhibit highlights New Hope Celebrates commitment to honoring the historic contributions made by gay individuals to Bucks County’s diverse, welcoming community through showcasing LGBTQ+ community from the past five decades.

The exhibit celebrates the 50th year anniversary of the Stonewall Riots in New York City that led to annual global Gay Pride parades and marches. These activities eventually contributed to the enactment of equal rights legislation as well as the legalization of gay marriage in the US.
