As of the 2019, no woman has been elected president of the United States.

However, since the 1970s there have been many women elected to public office, including many out lesbians. In 2018, the largest number of women were elected to both local, state and national office.

This exhibition looks at the careers of nine lesbian elected public officials, through the eyes of the gay press from around the country, found in SNMA’s Archives. We explore the challenges and opportunities these public officials faced.

Featured public officials will include: Kathy Kozachenko (Michigan 1974), Elaine Noble (Massachusetts 1974), Karen Clark (Minnesota 1981), Roberta Achtenberg (California 1989), Deborah Glick (New York 1990), Joanne Conte (Colorado 1991), Liz Stefanics (New Mexico 1992), Gail Shibley (Oregon 1991), Althea Garrison (Massachusetts 1993) and Cheryl Jacques (Massachusetts 1993).

On exhibition in the George Hester Gallery until Friday, November 6, 2020. Check out the exhibition at our location during our visiting hours: Mon - Fri, 11am - 5pm
