Nearly 20 million people attended the Louisiana Purchase Exposition of 1904, also known as “The 1904 St. Louis World’s Fair”. Of those attendees, an estimated 3.8% or 760,000 would have likely been considered LGBT+ by today’s standards. This presentation takes a look at the massive and historic 1904 World’s Fair, highlights notable “sexual minorities” who attended, and considers the Fair’s lasting social and technological impacts. Register in advance for this fun and informative presentation offered by SAGE of PROMO Fund and Prime Timers founding member Charles Koehler.
