Gill Foundation founder and co-chair Tim Gill co-authored an op-ed in the Washington Blade celebrating the release of the National Park System’s new “LGBTQ Theme Study.”
The study, which was funded by the Gill Foundation, identifies sites and events that are important to LGBTQ history for potential inclusion in the National Historic Register or designation as National Monuments.
Gill co-authored the op-ed with U.S. Secretary of the Interior Sally Jewell.
From the op-ed…
"Through a theme study, the initiative was designed to bring together LGBTQ scholars to help identify places and events associated with the story of LGBTQ Americans for inclusion in our national parks and programming. The study is a public-private partnership through the National Park Foundation with funding from the Gill Foundation, which is dedicated to advancing equal treatment for all Americans regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity."
