CHECK IT OUT
A Visual Journey: From AIDS to Marriage Equality is a traveling exhibit based on our popular gallery exhibit from 2015, featuring images from the Mark A. Lee LGBT Photo Collection. The gallery exhibit was the first to highlight our work on the Indiana LGBT Collecting Initiative we started in 2014. A Visual Journey documents more than 30 years of history in photos – both public and private moments – that take us from the AIDS epidemic through the fight for marriage equality.
Presented by Eli Lilly and Company and Cummins
You can find digital images from the Mark A. Lee Photo Collection and the Indiana LGBT Collection here.

The Indiana LGBT Collecting Initiative is a special project funded through gifts and grants from individuals, foundations and corporations through efforts of the LGBT History Advisory Committee, which includes community members and IHS trustees. IHS is also forging partnerships with key community organizations to further these efforts and to provide broad public accessibility of the collections. We encourage donations of photographs and other original material as well.
