ABOUT RAINBOW DIALOGUES

The Rainbow Dialogues is a series of community building conversations demonstrating how LGBTQ history and archival documents from the past are relevant for people today. The Dialogues will reference and contextualize LGBTQ life in Rochester against the backdrop of local and national social justice issues.

The Out Alliance Shoulders to Stand On Program’s 8th Initiative, the Rainbow Dialogues is
presented by the Out Alliance in partnership with the Rochester Public Library Local History and Genealogy Division (RPL), the Friends and Foundation of the Rochester Public Library(FFRPL), ImageOut, Rochester’s globally recognized LGBTQ Film Festival, The College at Brockport, WXXI and community volunteers.

We have received funding from the LGBT Fund of the Rochester Area Community Foundation, the NYS Humanities, the Friends and Foundation of the Rochester Public Library, and financial support from individuals in the community.

To all those who have helped in any way to make the Anthony Mascioli Rainbow Dialogues a success, Shoulders to Stand On, the Out Alliance and its partners THANK YOU for your
support. Your continued support will ensure the Anthony Mascioli Rainbow Dialogues continues
to make the LGBTQ history of Rochester visible and relevant.
