About Queer History South

QUEER HISTORY SOUTH is a vehicle for locating and sharing the rich, but often under-documented history of southern contributions to LGBTQ history and society.

QHS embraces the direct connection between sharing our stories and inspiring present-day activism. It strengthens our movement to know we are a part of the long legacy of American history and activism.

Who We Are

Queer History South is a network of professional and community members invested in preserving and promoting LGBTQ archiving and history in the 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 every two years at a different location across the South.

Who Can Attend

QHS is open to anyone interested but will be of particular interest to archivists, historians, students, faculty, researchers, public historians, oral historians, and community organizations invested in preserving local histories. QHS has attendance from across the US, but primarily focuses on 13 Southern states: Alabama, Mississippi, Georgia, Louisiana, North Carolina, South Carolina, Florida, Texas, Arkansas, Tennessee, Kentucky, Virginia, and West Virginia.

Conference content is still being finalized. Sessions from last year included:
