Eric Marcus and the Give Voice to History Project

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 high school and provide an assembly for your students of his audio oral history tour using the Give Voice to History Project podcast series. 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.

Important Note: The Give Voice to History Project podcast series is produced in partnership with History UnErased for grades 6-12 and is different from the Making Gay History podcast series intended for adult audiences.
