Making Gay History

Making Gay History is a podcast featuring rare interviews with figures from the LGBTQ civil rights movement. These interviews come from the archives of creator and host Eric Marcus, who won the Stonewall Book Award for his 1992 oral history book Making History: The Struggle for Gay and Lesbian Equal Rights, 1945 to 1990 (revised and updated in 2002 as Making Gay History). Here, visitors will find personal stories from the well-known, such as Ellen DeGeneres, and the relatively obscure, such as Wendell Sayers, who was "the first black lawyer to work for Colorado's Attorney General, and risked everything to join a gay discussion group." Each episode is accompanied by explanatory notes written by Marcus, links to other resources, a full transcript, and (often) photographs. Launched in 2016 and currently in its third season, Making Gay History can be downloaded on iTunes, Stitcher, and other platforms.
