The Story

We've completed our race to raise 5K in September 2017 and exceeded our goal by $441! Thank you to everyone who supported The History Project and we hope to see you at an Out of the Archives event soon!

______________________________________________

We're running our first race to raise 5k! Now through the end of September, when you donate to The History Project your gift will go twice as far! Several generous donors have agreed to match all donations to The History Project in September, up to $5,000. That means that for every dollar you donate, another dollar will be donated. We need your help to ensure we receive the full amount!


The History Project: Documenting LGBTQ Boston is Boston's community archives. An all-volunteer organization created in 1980, The History Project serves the LGBTQ community by documenting, preserving, and sharing LGBTQ history. The funds raised via this match will be used to support a full year of events from our popular Out of the Archives series.  Out of the Archives  events are informal, interactive presentations featuring speakers discussing collections from The History Project’s archives. 


Celebrating what THP does best, these events bring materials out of the archives so that the public can learn firsthand from our shared history. Our first Out of the Archives for the 2017-2018 season features Sarah Prager, award winning author of Queer, There, and Everywhere: 23 People Who Changed the World. We look forward to seeing you at an Out of the Archives  event soon! 


Innovative programs like Out of the Archives only exist with the support of the community. We hope we can count on you to help us meet this exciting challenge, earn our full match, and continue to share Boston’s LGBTQ history!

With just 5 days left in the match, we’ve reached over 75% of our $5000 goal! Thank you to all of those who have supported us so far!

We're still racing to make our total match and support a full year of Out of the Archives. In order to do so, we need to raise $1200 in the next 5 days. Join us, and please support The History Project as we finish our race to raise 5k. To donate, please visit: http://youcaring.com/thp5k!

The next event in our Out of the Archives series, generously supported by your donations, will be on October 23rd and features artist Ria Brodell discussing the research and process involved in the creation of the painting series "Butch Heroes." In this ongoing series of portraits, Brodell sheds light on gender nonconforming pioneers - real historic figures whose lives have been hidden, and whose stories demonstrate how our ideas of gender identity have evolved over hundreds of years.
