Celebrate LGBT History Month and National Coming Out Day from home! Explore queer history through the eyes of Charlie Gibson, the founder of the Gibson House Museum and a Bostonian of the Gilded Age. His story is one of family and legacy, of same-sex attraction and the fading grandeur of Victorian-era Boston. (This is a virtual version of our popular specialty tour, Charlie Gibson's Queer Boston.)
This event will take place via Zoom. Please be sure to download and acquaint yourself with the platform prior to the program. Access information will be sent to those who register the morning of the event. Registration is required and will close 15 minutes prior to the event.

The Gibson House is a historic house museum located in the Back Bay neighborhood of Boston. Now a National Historic Landmark, the home served as residence to three generations of Gibson family members and their household staff between 1859 and 1954. The Museum’s four floors of period rooms, including the original kitchen, are a time capsule of domestic life in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. The museum is currently closed due to COVID-19. Explore the house virtually through our website, social media, and virtual programs at thegibsonhouse.org.
