The Pittsburgh Queer History Project
The PQHP is an ongoing oral history and media preservation initiative. Begun in 2012 as an investigation of after-hours nightlife in the East Liberty section of Pittsburgh, its collection has revealed new histories of LGBT individuals and a unique community formation within the city’s ethnic and industrial social structures. The first exhibition of artifacts was presented in June of 2014 at the Future Tennant Gallery in Downtown Pittsburgh, titled “Luck After Dark.” With the goal of including this history in the larger public discourse of the city, the project curator Harrison Apple and Senior Curator Dr. Tim Haggerty are continuing to conduct research interviews and plan a print version of the exhibition catalogue.
