Hey, we have a couple of questions in our inbox asking for additional queer history resources, and we wanted to give you all some cool options!
These are all projects that have a base outside of social media so we might not have some of your favourites included.
Making Gay History: Yes, our names are surprisingly similar, yes, it was a total coincidence, you can find out more about how we came up with our name on our Q&A patron exclusive podcast episode. They are also just an amazing project, they had tons of interviews along with a couple of other cool things, and have recorded an incredible amount of oral history. If you are looking for details into the American gay movement, this is a great place to go! @makinggayhistory
History is Gay: This is a newer one, and we are so very excited to see where they go with their work! They seem like they have some amazing stuff already so they are a great resource! @historyisgaypodcast
Queer Portraits in History: We have worked with these people before, and we truly love their work! They have such beautiful portraits and great write-ups. Really just an incredible project! @queersinhistory
Queering Up History: This is a project we love for obvious reasons, and you really should take the time to check out their work if you haven’t already!
Surpassing the Love of Men: This is probably one of the most comprehensive books I have read about the evolution of relationships between women throughout history.
The Construction of Homosexuality: I am still in the process of reading through this one, but it is really great and totally worth the time.
Harvards Secret Court: I loved this book. While it does focus on a specific moment in time instead of queer history as a whole, it still is vey contextualized and has some incredible information in it.
