The Godwin-Ternbach Museum (GTM) is marking Pride Month by displaying My Pride Story in the Lobby Gallery from June 1 to 31. The multi-part exhibition, a joint effort of the CUNY LGBTQI+ Consortium, Queens Public Library (QPL), Queens Memory Project, and GTM, features historic and contemporary documents as well as photographic panels. During CUNY Pridefest 2022—taking place on campus Friday, June 10; see following article—drag performers will lead tours of My Pride Story every half-hour.

Members of the public are invited to share their own Pride stories by leaving signed or anonymous writings and drawings at GTM and Queens Library branches. All entries will be archived at the QPL.

My Pride Story is also part of the inaugural season of Queens Rising, a multidisciplinary arts celebration that, like Pride Month, runs throughout June.
