Rehoboth museum program to explore local LGBTQ history Sept. 25

September 15, 2021

The Rehoboth Beach Museum will continue its series In Their Own Words at 2 p.m., Saturday, Sept. 25, with an online presentation of the Oral History of Murray Archibald and the late Steve Elkins. Archibald and Elkins founded CAMP Rehoboth, a community service organization dedicated to creating a positive environment inclusive of all sexual orientations and gender identities in Rehoboth Beach and its related communities. CAMP Rehoboth was founded in 1991 to “create a more positive Rehoboth.” In the video, Archibald and Elkins provide insights about the founding and evolution of CAMP, their lives, and their vision for the organization’s future. It also explores Sundance, which predated CAMP, started as their anniversary party and went on to be a major AIDS fundraiser. This program provides an illuminating look at two trailblazing men who worked together to make their vision a reality.

Oral History Program Manager Robert Thompson will give an overview of the process of completing oral histories as an introduction to the video airing. Murray Archibald will be present to take questions at the end of the program.
