Join our 2018 Queer Holiday Gift Guide! Your work could be the perfect gift this holiday season, and we want to make sure it’s seen. Our gift guide features queer artists from around the world offering their art, writing, readings, and more.
This is not just a call for artists, but all queer creators! We want to share your queer businesses, projects, and works. It just takes a quick form telling us about yourself and your work.
We’ll be accepting submissions through our website through December 1.
And keep an eye out for holiday sales from our very own shop these coming weeks!
Can’t become a patron right now? We get it! You can still help by sharing queer history with your friends, following us on our other social media, commenting on our articles, and interacting with the project!
Funding Queer History starts today, May 12, and runs until the end of June. New and upgrading patrons not only ensure the future of Making Queer History but also get access to exclusive content and special rewards only available during the fundraiser.
All new and upgrading patrons get access to a bonus episode of the Making Queer History podcast. In addition to the standard patron rewards, new and upgrading patrons from orange all the way to green get a fundraiser exclusive mug. The mug features the FQH floral logo with a green carnation and violet.
New and upgrading patrons from blue to violet get a high-quality enamel pin with the same floral design.
Want to support the project but becoming a patron isn’t an option for the time being? No problem! We understand. For this fundraiser, we’re also offering a tier exclusive to FQH: rainbow patrons! Anyone who makes a one-time donation of $50 or more gets access to the same amazing bonus content and the exclusive FQH pin.
Spreading the word is key, and you’re all an important part of that. Share the fundraiser, learn more about the project, and stay tuned for updates as we go along!

Based on the pillars of research, education, and remembrance, the Magnus Hirschfeld Foundation works to uphold the legacy of Magnus Hirschfeld. After a recent election, Nicole Höchst of the AfD (Alternative für Deutschland) has been given a seat on the foundation’s board. In addition to her homophobic and Islamophobic rhetoric, she is firmly and vocally against the teaching of diversity in schools.

Do you run a queer project? Is there a queer project you love?
Send it in! We highlight a different queer project every month, and we love suggestions for who to check out. We highlighted seven incredible projects in 2017; this year, we want to feature even more queer creators!
If you want to suggest a project for us to cover you can message us here. If you are the runner of a project you want us to consider, please send us in an email at email@example.com.
