For Fun. For Learning. For All.
Inclusion is at the heart of what we do – it’s part of our mission, vision and strategic plan.
Once again, Please Touch Museum will be hosting a Pride Celebration on Friday, June 11, 2021, celebrating LGBTQIA individuals and the uniqueness of our visitors, their families and our employee community. This year’s Pride Celebration is sponsored by TD Bank.
During each timed session, visitors will be invited to sign up for one of two Drag Queen Storytimes, an interactive storytelling experience hosted by Philadelphia’s own Drag Queen Brittany Lynn, who encourages accepting differences, broadening perspectives, and looking beyond gender and other stereotypes.
Additionally, visitors will learn about the science of rainbows and can create their own in our Creative Arts Studio. In the Albert M. Greenfield Makerspace Studio, books featuring LGBTQIA inventors will be on display and children will be encouraged to use tools and materials to create an invention that can help others. Throughout the museum, children can find books centered on self-empowerment and acceptance.
