Built: Dance Party to Benefit LGBT Heritage
Wednesday, October 30, 2013 at 9:00 PM - Thursday, October 31, 2013 at 1:00 AM (EDT)
Held in conjunction with the annual National Preservation Conference in Indianapolis, it’ll be an LGBT party to remember.
We’ll honor inspiring LGBT preservation initiatives—the New York City AIDS Memorial, San Francisco’s Twin Peaks Tavern Landmark Nomination and Citywide Historic Context Statement for GLBT History, and announce a new collaboration between Indiana Landmarks and Indy Pride’s Chris Gonzalez Library and Archives to map Indianapolis LGBT heritage sites.
Pride of Indy Jazz Ensembl and free drinks 9-9:30 p.m. (an incentive to get here for the program that begins at 9:45 p.m.)! By 10:15, drag queen Asia LaBouche leads everyone to dance the night away. Enter the Halloween costume contest to win seriously cool prizes.
You don’t have to be LGBT to join the party. Allies welcome!
Shuttle service provided from the National Preservation Conference Opening Reception and Omni Severin Hotel to Talbott Street at 9 p.m.; last shuttle departs Talbott Street at 11 p.m., with cab service available thereafter.
Sponsored by Indiana Landmarks and the National Trust with support from Nixon Peabody.
