Ohio Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT) Scanning Project

The digitization of community materials and support for public programs that will deepen the historical record documenting Ohio’s lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) community. The project would support a scanning day and programs that include talks by curators as well as community exhibit spaces that would serve audiences around Ohio, in both urban and rural communities. The proposed project would contribute digitized community material, including letters, diaries, photographs, and scrapbooks that document the recent decades of this community, to the Ohio History Connection (OHC).

The Gay Ohio History Initiative (GOHI) is requesting $12,000 to develop the Ohio Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT) Scanning Project. The Ohio LGBT Scanning Project is a humanities based project designed to digitize historical materials from members of Ohio’s LGBT community to build a comprehensive history of this community. The LGBT Scanning Project will build on the efforts set forth by GOHI to digitize community collections. GOHI will hold this community event at the Ohio History Connection in Columbus, Ohio.
