Florida Queer History (FQH)

The Florida Queer History Project, founded in June 2016, is a growing archive of oral histories dedicated to highlighting the queer experience throughout the last century. The project aims to provide a means for queer-identified individuals to express and document how their sexual orientations and gender identities have shaped their lives. The Project also seeks to document the contemporary LGBTQ+ Movement through a variety of fieldwork initiatives—most recently, 2017 Pride weekend in Washington, DC.

Archival Collections

  • Oral history interviews and fieldwork data collected for the Florida Queer History Project are currently undergoing processing, and interview audio data are available to access through the Samuel Proctor Oral History Program offices. Please contact us for more information.
  • “Florida Queer History: Queer in the Capital” Zine: get a copy of our first zine by contacting project coordinators Robert Baez or Holland Hall. The zine highlights our June 2017 research trip to document Pride weekend in Washington, D.C., and features artwork and poetry by members of the LGBTQ+ community.

Get Involved

  • Currently seeking volunteers who wish to contribute their time transcribing interviews and learning how to conduct oral history interviews, in addition to those interested in developing digital humanities projects utilizing the archival material (e.g. video production, podcasting, zine publication).  
  • This project welcomes partnership with other departments who wish to collaborate on means to increase visibility for the queer community. Those interested in contributing their talents or wishing to bring their unique interests to this project are encouraged to contact the project coordinators.
