all queer history on here is just US-American or maybe sometimes some UK history as well and it makes me sad that there’s so little information about other countries’ queer history on here 🙁

@makingqueerhistory has some diversity, as of historical queer people, and they’re doing a great job, but there’s a lot of work ahead. 

OP is definitely right, there still is a huge gap in the discussions of queer history, and thank you for recommending us!

This isn’t perfect, and many of these only have one article, but here is our list of countries we have written about. We are hoping to one day have at least one article for every country in the world but as @every-book-has-a-secret there is a lot of work still to do.

MakingQueerHistory ( @makingqueerhistory ) has a brief, but good, intro to historical research – focusing on queer history – here.  It includes a great list of queer-specific archives to use for research.

Thank you for recommending us! We try our best to be a good starting point.

Hello do you know any bi women from old days like 30s or similar time ? I want to read about them if you know any.

It’s really difficult to find explicitly “bi” women from before the 60s/70s because we were all just considered “lesbians” until lesbian separatists kicked up out of our community. I guess many queer women who are considered lesbians in retrospect might have been what we’d now call “bisexual” so… it’s not easy to find them.

I would recommend checking out @makingqueerhistory. Maybe they have some articles about (possibly) bi women from the past.

Inspired by @makingqueerhistorys article on the Golden Orchid Society I decided it was time to get the gold ink and paints out!

Absolutely love the work they do!

This is so lovely! I am completely in love with it, and it is a great companion to our article!
