Among Dreams LGBTQI Military Archive

Cataloging stories and dreams of LGBTQI active duty service members and veterans, Among Dreams LGBTQI Military Archive seeks to "illuminate the bravery and activism distinct of LGBTQI who risk their lives in service of a nation that has - past and present - upheld laws against their own personal freedoms." Though the project's physical exhibition has closed, an archive of its interviews (from 2011-2014) remains available. On the Archive page, readers can filter records by name, date, and category (e.g. army or Vietnam). Each post offers first person perspectives, including an audio clip and a written narrative, as well as photographs and an entry about the featured individual's dreams. In its entirety, the archive shows the full range of emotions contributors felt, from "fear and hiding ... [to] determination, bravely and unwavering patriotism." Readers should note that the exhibition covers potentially triggering topics such as PTSD, sexual assault, and violence. Chelsea Rae Klein created the project with support from the San Francisco Arts Commission, the Zellerbach Family Foundation, the San Francisco LGBT Center, and Intersection for the Arts.
