OutHistoryOutHistory
http://www.outhistory.org/

Description:
“OutHistory was founded by Jonathan Ned Katz, author of the groundbreaking Gay American History (1976) and other books on the history of sexuality. As the web became part of the everyday life of millions – even billions – of people in the 21st Century, Jonathan saw the possibilities for LGBT history to reach larger audiences than ever before. He also imagined the site as a place of active community participation in the discovery and creation of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender history. Amateur and professional historians, those based in colleges and universities and those working on their own, those focused on a particular topic and those with wide interests: all of us could have a forum where we put our research to share it with others, and where others could share and add to it as well.” - http://www.outhistory.org/about-outhistory
