Gerber/Hart Library, 6500 N. Clark St., will host "Amigas Latinas 30-Year Archive Exhibit" Thursday, June 11, 6-8 p.m.

Earlier this year, it was announced that Amigas Latinas would fold after two decades of offering a wide range of support, education and advocacy for Chicago-area LGBTQQ Latinas. On July 10, founders, former board members, past and current Amigas Latinas members, friends and families will come together to celebrate the organization's twenty-year-long history.

See "Amigas Latinas 20 Year Archive Exhibit" on Facebook.
