Virtual Pride Events Announced At The National Liberty Museum In June

National Liberty Museum offers several virtual activities for adults highlighting LGBTQ+ issues during June's Pride month available on NLM@Night. From riotous entertainment to a week of engaging activities to a stimulating panel discussion, the virtual NLM@Night series offers audiences an opportunity to explore the many facets of liberty.

"For more than 20 years we at The National Liberty Museum have been shining a light on the accomplishments of heroes around the world as well as everyday heroes - neighbors who are helping neighbors, strangers doing small acts of kindness for each other, and ordinary citizens who are staying home to stem the tide of infection. Now, utilizing our new digital resources, we are moving build the borders of our Museum to reach people at home, offering an array of programs to inspire and engage curious minds about the ideals of freedom," said CEO Gwen Borowsky.

NLM@NIGHT celebrates First Friday with a virtual Get You A Babe Who Can #DoBoth on Friday, June 5 from 8:00-9:00PM. This Zoom Meeting, hosted by Philadelphia burlesque producer and award-winning emcee Flirt Vonnegut, features two performers in a raucous evening of Tedx-style lectures followed by steamy burlesque performances and audience participation games. Performers include Honey Tree EvilEye in a Tedx talk on Social Media Censorship, and Elsa Riot talking about How Dungeons & Dragons Help You Build Skills for Real Life. Tickets to this event are $10; registration is available at

In addition to its NLM@Night programming for adults, NLM also offers NLM@Home, fun and educational programming for families and their children exploring themes of respect, taking action, and spreading liberty to all.
