Last fall during the PastForward Online 2020 diversity affinity session on the preservation of LGBTQ Historic Sites, attendees flooded the chat with links to resources related to the LGBTQ history in the United States. While you can access the full list of links and watch the affinity session here, the resources below focus on a set of mapping projects and completed context statements for those looking to save historic sites related to LGBTQ history.
The material in this list was curated from a variety of places: general searches and from other preservation professionals, the chat during the affinity group meeting, and the great resource page provided by the NYC LGBT Historic Sites Project. However, as with the recent resource list about Asian and Pacific Islander American historic places, this is not an exhaustive set of materials. Rather, it is meant to give preservationists a glimpse of some of the great work being done to identify and preserve LGBTQ historic places across the country.
