OutHistory.org: Making Up for Lost Time!
OutHistory.org is a freely accessible, community created, educational, non-profit website on lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and, yes, heterosexual history.
From September 2011 on OutHistory is being directed by historians John D'Emilio and Jennifer Brier at the University of Illinois, Chicago, in consultation with Jonathan Ned Katz, and in cooperation with the Center for Lesbian and Gay Studies at the City University of New York Graduate Center, and other interested advisors.
In its first four years, OutHistory was produced by the Center for Lesbian and Gay Studies directed, first, by Paisley Currah, then by Sarah Chinn, and most recently by James Wilson.
During its four founding years OutHistory was supported by a generous grant from the Arcus Foundation which ended December 31, 2010. Contributions from individuals are also welcome and a new donation page is being created.
OutHistory was awarded the 2010 Allan Berube Prize in Public History by the Committee on LGBT History of the American Historical Association.
