A 50-year retrospective of Iowans’ efforts to support human rights without discrimination based on sexual preferences or gender identity is the subject of “Evolution of the Revolution,” the current exhibition at Polk County Heritage Gallery.

Historic images and artifacts, presented by the Des Moines Pride Center, trace the state’s evolution of thought that led to the legal recognition of same-sex marriage. A reception in the gallery is scheduled from 6 to 9:30 p.m. Friday, May 31. The exhibition continues through June 21. For more information, click here.
