LGBT History in Indiana: Documenting and Sharing

Several cultural heritage institutions in Indiana have been working on documenting and sharing the heritage and history of the Indiana and Indianapolis LGBT community.  In 2014 the Indiana Historical Society announced its 3-phased collecting strategy, starting with the Indianapolis and Central Indiana LGBT Oral History Project.  These stories will become a piece of the Indiana Historical Society’s expanding collections.  Around the same time the Indiana Landmarks Foundation announced its LGBT Heritage program which identifies, researches, and marks physical locations significant to LGBT history within Indiana.  In 2010 The Chris Gonzalez Library & Archives, the brain child of life long Indiana resident and LGBT advocate Michael Bohr, partnered with IUPUI University Library and the Kinsey Institute to digitize and provide open access to early Indiana GLBT newsletters: http://kinseyinstitute.org/library/gonzalez.html.  This session will share how these projects came to fruition and next steps for continuing to preserve Indiana’s LGBT history.
