As Americans moved across the country to create new lives, some also used the opportunity to establish their authentic selves. Boag discusses his quest to find the history of those who changed their assigned genders when moving west, and how they were written out of American history. Gwen Whiting will also share about the materials used in the exhibition to illustrate these underrepresented stories.
The exhibition Crossing Boundaries is on view at the Washington State History Museum from May 29 through December 12, 2021.
