Queer History South, helping save LGBTQ history across the South through networking, best practices, professional development, research, and more!

Queer History South (QHS) is a network and conference that connects people working to preserve, research, and make accessible the rich and diverse histories of the LGBTQ US South. The primary purpose of QHS is to provide networking, professional development, and best practices for those directly working (formally or informally, professionally or communally) in the fields of Southern LGBTQ Histories, Archives, Exhibits, Historical Research, and Historical Education. QHS meets for a conference every two years at a different location across the South. QHS also offers opportunities for collaboration, research, and educational professional development opportunities throughout the year.
