Our History

How did we get here?

The William & Mary LGBTIQ Research Project: Documenting the LGBTIQ Past in Virginia aims to better understand, chronicle and preserve the history of LGBTIQ people in Virginia. 

Beginning with research at the Library of Virginia, the Virginia Historical Society, Virginia Commonwealth University, William & Mary, and other archives, student researchers:

  • engage communities
  • preserve knowledge and
  • discover histories related to LGBTIQ experiences in the state of Virginia.
