Queer Digital History

The Queer Digital History Project (QDHP) is "an ongoing effort to document pre-2010 LGBTQ digital spaces online." The website is maintained by Avery Dame-Griff (Lecturer of Communication Studies at Gonzaga University), who recognized that as our technological world evolved, many of the "ad-hoc spaces" created by and for the LGBTQ community became under-recognized. In response, the QDHP launched its mission: "logging queer history online, one site at a time." Under Browse Collections, readers will find the collections maintained by the Project: The Queer Digital Community Catalog, Primary Documents Archive, AIDs Info BBS, and Archived LGBTQ Yahoo Groups. The Community Catalog Map tracks the over 40 locations from which cataloged items were collected. The map can be sorted by tag, item, or location. The Mapping TGNet page contains a similar mapping structure specific to "one of the first independent international transgender communication networks." The Transgender Usernet Archive, LGBTQ Web History Research Results, and Queer Yahoo Groups Preservation Project all house resources specific to each project.
