The exhibit is under the direction of Daniel Brooks, NHC & NHCH Founder. Designed and Produced by Gordon Pulaski, NHC’s Creative Director. Special thanks to Visit Bucks, NHC Board of directors, The Raven Resort, New Hope, Eric Rounds LLC and Impact Signs of New Hope.

New Hope Celebrates History — Our mission is to celebrate and remember those pioneers who came before us as well as to engage and educate present generations about their gay heritage. We hope to not only entertain and reminisce but to also educate attendees on the distance homosexuals have journeyed from hiding, hate, and persecution to achieving recognition, joy, and hope in their continued fight for basic human rights.

Visitors takeaway It is our sincere hope that visitors will leave the exhibit enlightened, inspired and with a deeper understanding and appreciation of both the local and national LGBTQ+ community and its quest for equality. We hope to capture just a glimpse of the thousands of individuals who paved the way to a better way of life through the good times and the bad.
