Queer Digital History Project

MISSION

Logging queer history online, one site at a time.

ABOUT

The QDHP is an independent digital history project documenting pre-2010 LGBTQ digital spaces online. Our current projects include:

  • A catalog of early LGBTQ online communities
  • An archive of transgender-related Usenet newsgroups
  • Interactive maps of TGNet, one of the first international transgender-specific BBS networks
  • Primary documents from early communitites, covering the mid-1980s to the late 2000s
For more information on the project's policies, see the FAQ page. If you're interested in donating items, see our donation page for more information on that process.

The QDHP is maintained by Avery Dame-Griff, a Visiting Assistant Professor of Gender, Women's, and Sexuality Studies at Appalachian State University. If you're using the project, please get in contact! We're always interested in hearing how folks are using the QDHP (and how it could improve).
