Queer spaces are for "the others." They are created from the ground up, in appropriated locations. They are constantly menaced with threats of erasure by heteronormative society, which sees queer space as a threat and therefore allows and encourages its
removal. Time and time again, sites of queer history have been paved over, both physically and in memory.
Uncovering Queer Histories
aims to highlight, commemorate, and provoke activations of these sites of forgotten histories through research and interpretation,
design counterproposals, physical interventions, performance pieces, material studies, photography, and more. It is an ongoing and evolving interconnected tool kit, designed to feed off previous actions. The website
is the home base for these site activations, inviting people to submit their own opinions, stories, memories, images, and research. Through the platform, these strategies
can be applied elsewhere. The reach of the work could expand to other cities, helping to uncover forgotten stories and bring them to public attention. I invite you to visit the website and follow @uncoveringqueerhistories to learn about sites that
have been uncovered and to stay up-to-date with ongoing work. Share this with your friends and invite them to contribute to the project. Educate. Provoke a discussion. Ignite a reaction.
