LGBT History Month: Museum updates its history of Alice Austen

LGBT History Month: Museum updates its history of Alice Austen | PinkieB.com | Gay and Lesbian Life | Scoop.it

Tucked away on the shore of Staten Island is a handsome house that was saved from demolition in the 1980s and today is on the National Register of Historic Places. But it's who lived there and who she lived with that is most interesting to LGBTs.

Matt Skallerud's insight:

Alice Austen was one of America's earliest and most prolific female photographers. She lived in the house, called Clear Comfort and now formally known as the Alice Austen House, with her mother when she was growing up, and later, with her longtime partner, Gertrude Tate. That the women didn't consider themselves lesbians is not lost on historians, who are now working to reinterpret Austen's story to more fully include Tate.
