Help Us Make History

There are three important ways that you can participate in The History Project's mission to research, preserve, and present Boston's GLBT history.

Donate Time

Join our collective of educators, archivists, librarians, activists, writers, designers, and students. There are countless ways to participate--help scan documents, set up an exhibit, conduct research, or brainstorm new and unusual ideas for bringing Boston's GLBT history to life.

Donate Materials

Our special collections consist of materials that have been donated by individuals and organizations. Bar memorabilia, flyers, photographs, buttons, organizational minutes, newspaper articles--contact us if you have something you'd like to donate.

Donate Money

Become a History Project sponsor. Support a specific project, or help us continue our ongoing efforts to document Boston's LGBT history.
