The National Park Service offers this collection of essays focusing on U.S. LGBTQ history. Many of these essays examine the role of place and space in LGBTQ history. For instance, in one essay, Susan Stryker highlights the "places that matter" in transgender history. Other essays describe places connected with specific individuals, such as the home of activist Pauli Murray in Durham, North Carolina and the residence of Bayard Rustin in New York City. Visitors interested in helping to preserve and recognize places important to LGBTQ history will want to check out the "What Can You Do to Get Involved with the LGBTQ Heritage Initiative?" section. Here, visitors can add landmarks to an interactive map or provide additional information about existing landmarks. As of this write-up, the map features community centers, co-ops, bars, and other places that have a place in LGBTQ history.
