Rainbow History Project

The Rainbow History Project is a volunteer-run organization dedicated to collecting and preserving "an active knowledge of the history, arts, and culture relevant to sexually diverse communities in metropolitan Washington DC." Here, readers will find online archives containing over 1,400 publicly available items (as of this writing) relating to LGBT history in the DC area. These archives can be browsed in a list, by tag, or by map, and they can also be searched by keyword and a variety of fields. This project also offers several online exhibits, such as "'Gay is Good': Gay and Lesbian Organizing in DC, 1961-1975." The Rainbow History Project's archives have been organized into several dozen thematic collections, including newsletters and fliers, t-shirts and textiles, and oral histories. It should be noted that while the oral histories have a publicly available interview description, few of the sound files are online to protect the privacy of those interviewed. Those interested may contact the organization to request access to specific interviews.
