DHHRM opens LGBTQ history exhibit featuring the Stonewall rebellion and progress made since then DAVID TAFFET | Senior Staff Rise Up: Stonewall and the LGBTQ Rights Movement at the Dallas Holocaust and Human Rights Museum tells more than the story of the protest that erupted when a small bar in New York was raided.

Packed into the exhibit is more than 50 years of LGBTQ history — complete with photos, artifacts, films and interactive displays.

The museum, which began its life in the basement of the Jewish Community Center, moved downtown to an old building in the West End and rebranded itself as the Dallas Holocaust Museum Center for Education and Tolerance.

When the museum built its own building that opened in 2019, museum Director Mary Pat Higgins said she, her board and community members thought we, as humans, could do better than just tolerate each other.
