The Legacy Wall is a one-of-a-kind traveling exhibit that features "mini-biographies" of LGBT people from every walk of life. Its digitally interactive content is international and multicultural, and has been substantially vetted and sourced. This wonderfully positive and inspiring exhibit raises awareness of the roles LGBT people have played in shared human history – information which helps to boost the self-esteem of LGBTQ youth who are raised without the benefit of historically significant role-models. It has also been shown to lessen the incidence of all forms of bullying in our schools by encouraging a culture of mutual respect and tolerance. The goal of the Legacy Wall is to use the powerful lessons of history to spark conversations about this information’s ability to promote a feeling of safety and belonging in the classroom – giving our children hope by improving their outlook on life.
HOSTING AND SPONSORSHIP OPPORTUNITIES
Institutions from every sector of community stakeholders are encouraged to consider hosting the installation in their facility. The Legacy Project offers colleges, universities, libraries, cultural institutions, government facilities, and corporate centers an opportunity to have this unique, thought-provoking display installed in their public areas for patrons, employees, donors, and constituents to peruse, or for use as part of educational exercises during the school year. Hosting the Legacy Wall in your facility is an ideal way to involve business resource groups, diversity training endeavors, cross-department synergies, campus pride organizations, gay-straight alliances (GSAs), and local community groups in a shared experience which truly underscores LGBT contributions during this critical time in our history when so much has been accomplished, but so many challenges remain. For a tax-deductible donation (plus transportation expenses) the Legacy Wall can be set-up for negotiable periods from one week to one month. All contracts include set-up/breakdown labor and support.
