Raising public awareness about the LGBT community’s contributions to American history and the struggles it has faced is more important now than ever.
Going as far back as the 17th century, this map-based online platform surveys and documents over a hundred historic and culturally significant sites across New York City’s five boroughs, with hundreds more to come. Each site has been carefully documented and categorized based on its location, historical era, and cultural significance. Profiles of each site include an incredible array of historical content, anecdotes, interviews, imagery, and multimedia. Curated themes connect sites across the city by subjects such as Art & Architecture, Activism Before Stonewall, and Transgender History.
Additionally, templates for presentations and documents help clearly brand and communicate the project's importance, whether they are presenting to the public, applying for grants, or recommending sites to be included in New York State’s historic register.
It was an honor to work on such an important project!
