The Invisible Histories Project
Designed to be a repository for the preservation of the history of LGBTQ life first in the state of Alabama and then the entire Southeast.
IHP works with individuals, organizations, and service providers to locate materials related to the LGBTQ history of the Deep South. Working with our team, we locate letters, pictures, t-shirts, objects, and more to help tell the story of the Queer South through our physical histories.
IHP is working with professional and graduate student archivists to catalogue and make accessible collections. Our repositories include public libraries, special collections archives at multiple universities, and state archives to make sure these items are accessible for future generations of community members and researchers.
IHP is working hard to put LGBTQ Southern history into the hands of the community. Through community programming, student research, coursework, exhibits, and regional projects, IHP works to tell the complex and beautiful story of the Queer South.
