Washington DC receives funding to document its LGBT heritage

In 2016, the US National Park Service released online a report entitled “LGBTQ Heritage Theme Study.” Such theme studies are designed to provide the context necessary for individuals groups, and organizations to research, identify, document, and preserve important heritage sites related to that theme. Subsequently, the National Park Service developed a grant program intended to assist various locales in conducting research into their own local LGBTQ history. The DC Historic Preservation Office together with the DC Office of Planning recently received a $50,000 grant that will assist not only with the documentation of DC’s LGBTQ heritage sites but will also lead to putting that information online in a publicly-accessible database.
