About the Project

Building an accessible queer archive in Poland
Project Grant

The systemic homophobia and instrumentalization of history for political purposes by populist and right-wing parties in Poland led in recent years to the exclusion of specific minority groups such as LGBTQIA+ communities from mainstream historical discourse. These factors and the relatively early stage of the LGBTQIA+ movement in Poland stand in the way of the creation of a public, accessible queer archive. The project aims to counteract the vulnerability of ‘queer memory’ and create the first comprehensive queer archive to preserve and present the under-documented history of Polish queer activism from the late 1980s.
