Hidden In Plain Sight: Documenting Queer Stories in Archives (virtual)

This event is no longer on sale.

Wednesday June 29

6:00 PM  –  7:00 PM

Researching Queer history in archives poses unique challenges. Where written records survive, a person’s sexual life or desires may not be included in the records or might be veiled. In other scenarios, descendants of LGBTQ+ people have censored or destroyed records. In the face of these issues, how do we create inclusive and accurate histories? Panelists will reflect on methods they have used to navigate the archives and highlight Queer stories. The panel also asks, how do you write LGBTQ+ history when the records are not enough?
