It Wasn’t Always Rainbows: The History of Gender and Sexuality in Mental Health
October 23 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
“Twenty Million Homosexuals Gain Instant Cure” read a local headline announcing the declassification of homosexuality as a mental health disorder by the American Psychiatric Association in 1973. We often think of recovery as an individual process, but history shows that institutions, too, can recover. In observance of LGBT History Month, the City of Philadelphia Department of Behavioral Health & Intellectual disAbility Services LGBTQ+ Task Force hosts a lunchtime conversation on the history of gender and sexuality in mental health. Join us on Friday, October 23 1:00 PM – 2:00 PM EST for this virtual event
