LGBTQ Life in the Lowcountry: Home

Resources designed to supplement the Documenting LGBTQ Life in the Lowcountry Project.




About the project

Attempting to shed light on the experiences of the Lowcountry's understudied LGBTQ population, this project involves collecting, organizing, cataloging, storing, and analyzing oral histories and related archival materials in the South Carolina Lowcountry. For more information, visit the project's website at

About the guide

This guide acts as a supplement to the archival materials and oral histories collected by the project. It provides context to the project materials by gathering secondary sources relating to LGBTQ lives and history throughout the South.
