Description

Feb. 4 - Mar. 14, Exhibition Space of the Mary Idema Pew Library

West Michigan’s landscape reflects the histories of a bustling tourism industry along the shoreline of Lake Michigan during the summer. Many of these areas were profoundly transformed, garnering reputations for their acceptance of minorities. The twin lakeshore communities of Saugatuck-Douglas, became an important touchstone in thinking about the region’s LGBT history as the towns became a “home for all.” 

In collaboration with the Saugatuck-Douglas History Center and supported by a National Endowment for the Humanities Common Heritage grant, this project documents the Saugatuck-Douglas area’s rise to become a destination for the LGBT community and other contemporary stories through oral histories and digitization of objects, photographs, and ephemera.
