The event will be held Thursday, Aug. 17, at the Missouri History Museum, from 5:30 to 8 p.m. It’s part of the Missouri Historical Society’s Gateway to Pride Initiative, which celebrates the complexity, creativity and diversity of St. Louis’ LGBTQ+ communities.

Cosponsored by AARP in St. Louis and the William A. Kerr Foundation, among others, the initiative includes an ongoing virtual exhibit and in-person events at the St. Louis museum, including the Pride DJ Night and panel discussions.

The free DJ event is open to the public and includes after-hours access to the museum’s exhibits. Appetizers and drinks will be available for purchase.

A happy hour will be held in the MacDermott Grand Hall before the music starts up in Lee Auditorium. The museum is at 5700 Lindell Blvd. in St. Louis. Registration is not required. Attendees who stop by the AARP in St. Louis table can receive an insulated tumbler, according to Sheila Holm, its community outreach director.
