People with a History: An Online Guide to Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Trans* History

Site Maintainer: Paul Halsall
©1997


Introduction

People with a History presents the history of lesbians, gay men, bisexuals and transgendered people [=LGBT]. It includes hundreds of original texts, discussions, and [soon] images, and addresses LGBT history in all periods, and in all regions of the world.

Browse the Contents guide below to access a series of large index pages which will then link you directly to the texts and images that interest you.

In addition to texts, the site includes other aides to help you study, or just make sense of LGBT history - note especially the guide to online bibliographies and the onsite bibliography [which is the most up-to-date and complete bibliography of LGBT history available]

If you want to learn more about the goals behind this site, see the introductory chapters Introductory Chapter and if you wish to get straight (!) to current debates about the nature of LGBT history go to Chapter 1 on History and Theory .

INVITATION TO CONTRIBUTE

If you have texts which could be added to this page, please consider sending them to me at halsall@bway.net. Texts can include texts from the past, or papers you have written about homosexuality, bisexuality, or transgendering in history.


Contents

It is a specific goal of People with a History to avoid complex web hierarchies, and continual mouse-clicking. It proved - in the draft version of this site on AOL - to be too cumbersome to have only one main index page.

The various chapters are now grouped in sections. The contents of all the chapters in each section can be accessed via the contents page for that section.

The old style All-in-One Page
is still available, but will not be updated
