The History Project: Documenting LGBTQ Boston

The History Project (THP) is a nonprofit organization that describes itself as "the only organization focused exclusively on documenting and preserving the history of New England's LGBTQ communities and sharing that history with LGBTQ individuals, organizations, allies, and the public." Visitors to THP's website may like to begin by checking out the organization's projects that, as of this write-up, include an interactive story map highlighting significant locations in Boston's queer history, created to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Uprising in 1969. THP also maintains a large archive of "more than 150 collections from organizations and individuals encompassing more than one million documents," artifacts, and multimedia relating to New England LGBTQ history, some of which have been digitized and made viewable online. Additionally, readers can explore digital versions of several exhibitions created by THP to examine various aspects of LGBTQ history in the Boston area, such as The Queer East, which celebrates the region's Asian queer community, and Public Faces/Private Lives, "which chronicles Boston's LGBTQ history from 1620 up to the Stonewall rebellion." THP is run entirely by volunteers, and its board of directors includes professional archivists, historians, and communication experts.
