In the late 1980s, Eric Marcus began recording over 100 audio oral history interviews with LGBTQ activists and pioneers from the 20th century. These interviews informed Eric's authorship of two books and inspired the award-winning series Making Gay History–The Podcast.

Eric will come to your school and provide an assembly for your students with his audio oral history tour using the Give Voice to History Project podcast series, produced in partnership with History UnErased for NYC DOE. Students will hear about Eric’s experiences meeting these extraordinary people and listen to their brave, funny, and often frustrating tales of championing LGBTQ equality. Listen to the series intro below!

UnErasing LGBTQ History and Identities: A Podcast for Teachers

What if there is pushback?

And where do I even begin?

This podcast provides real-world advice and reasonable, practical strategies on how you can create LGBTQ-inclusive classrooms. Thanks for listening!

This podcast series is funded by the New York City Council Committee on Education and developed by History UnErased in partnership with Making Gay History. Click one of the episodes below or find us on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Google Podcasts, iHeartRadio, Amazon Music, or Stitcher.
