The exhibition History Happens Now gives an overview of individuals and grassroots initiatives that fight for LGBTIQ+ emancipation in the Netherlands. Each of the 20 participating organizations from all over the country has submitted an object to the exhibition and the accompanying catalogue.

The exhibition can be seen from until 3 December at the IHLIA Plaza in the OBA Oosterdok.
