Project Update

Give with Purpose on #GivingTuesday and Support the Project

November 28, 2017

Show your support of history, culture and social justice this season. Give to the NYC LGBT Historic Sites Project this #GivingTuesday. In a season synonymous with shopping ‘til dropping, #GivingTuesday reminds us that the philanthropic spirit lives on and lives strong!

The NYC LGBT Historic Sites Project has an ambitious research and publication goal for 2018, and we’re counting on your support to achieve it. Your donation will help us research and write over 100 new historic site entries for our website, photograph more buildings, and dive into more archival holdings. Atop the list of our most necessary expenses are professional staff with the expertise to identify and research often-invisible LGBT history and technology experts to maintain our sophisticated website with interactive map — this is critical to ensure we’re achieving one of our foundational goals of serving as a tool for education, especially as Stonewall 50 approaches in 2019.

Donate to help power the NYC LGBT Historic Sites Project into another year.

Since launching the project in 2015, we’ve made incredible progress … yet we’ve only scratched the surface of the significant font of LGBT history here in NYC. Support us this #GivingTuesday to ensure that the invisible history of LGBT New Yorkers and Americans is documented, honored and passed on to new generations.

Sincerely,

Ken, Jay, Andrew and Amanda
