    Detroit is facing enormous challenges with an abundance of vacant and abandoned buildings in the city. Demolition is a necessary part of moving the city forward, but Detroit can't just demo its way to revitalization. Here, individuals on the ground in Detroit show that through strategic preservation and rehabilitation of commercial and residential structures, you can change the dynamic one building at a time and demonstrate that just because it's vacant, doesn't mean it's blighted.

      "Detroit is a city that truly appreciates your contributions and having you here". For members of Detroit's GLBTQ community, that appreciation is manifest. Whether through activism, business ownership, historic preservation, or as cultural curators, the gay community is changing the landscape of the city. Here are just a few of the faces of Detroit's vibrant GLBT community.

        A short overview about Nauset Light and the Nauset Light Preservation Society. Nauset Light is a lighthouse in Eastham, Massachusetts located within the Cape Cod National Seashore. The tower was rescued from the edge of a sixty-foot high eroding cliff in November 1996 by a non-profit group of unpaid volunteers, the Nauset Light Preservation Society. The lighthouse now sits safely at a new location approximately 300 feet west of the Atlantic Ocean shoreline at Nauset Light Beach. (5 minutes, © Nauset Light Preservation Society)

          Upon its completion in October 1958, the Union Tank Car Dome, located north of Baton Rouge, Louisiana, was the largest clear-span structure in the world. Based on the engineering principles of the visionary design scientist and philosopher Buckminster Fuller, this geodesic dome was, at 384 feet in diameter, the first large scale example of this building type. "A Necessary Ruin" relates the powerful, compelling narrative of the dome’s history via interviews with architects, engineers, preservationists, media, and artists; animated sequences demonstrating the operation of the facility; and hundreds of rare photographs and video segments taken during the dome’s construction, decline, and demolition.
