Dr. Richard Godbeer of Virginia Commonwealth University and Dr. Marc Stein of San Francisco State University were well received at Diversity Richmond's recent community conversation about LGBT history. Both are nationally recognized authorities on the subject and shared fascinating stories of our civil rights pioneers and how society treated LGBT people, even as far back as the 1600's.

This program was the first in a series that Diversity Richmond will sponsor addressing our history. For more information, contact Rodney Lofton.
