Four months after going public with their plans, the board members of the New York City-based American LGBTQ+ Museum have begun the process to hire its first executive director.
The person will assist with the effort to open the museum in 2024 under the current timeline. The new LGBTQ institution announced itself this winter with a March 2 tweet declaring it to be a "new collaboration dedicated to preserving, researching, and sharing LGBTQ+ history and culture." At the time it pledged to have a physical presence in New York City that was "vibrant and welcoming, both visually and cognitively, for the entire LGBTQ+ community." In late June the museum revealed it had entered into a partnership with the New-York Historical Society.
