OutHistory.org Launches "Since Stonewall Local Histories Contest"
To commemorate the 40th anniversary of the Stonewall riots, OutHistory.org will award five prizes for the best online exhibits on the local LGBTQ histories of villages, towns, counties and cities in the US since June 1969. Prizes range from $5,000 to $1,000.
We expect this contest to draw attention to LGBTQ histories outside of major cities, as well as in major metropolitan areas. We hope to receive at least one submission from every state, but there is no limit on the number of entries per state.
To be eligible for the contest, first drafts of exhibits must be posted on OutHistory.org by the 40th anniversary of the Stonewall riots on June 28, 2009. Any logged-in user can create and edit entries on OutHistory.org. Exhibit creators will be able to revise and develop their exhibits until March 31, 2010. Then, a panel of judges, convened by OutHistory.org will assess the exhibits. OutHistory.org will announce the top five exhibits on June 28, 2010.
This contest is supported by the Center for Lesbian and Gay Studies at the City of New York Graduate Center and funded by the Arcus Foundation.
