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.

UnErasing LGBTQ History and Identities podcast

For K-12 educators who want to create LGBTQ-inclusive classrooms, getting started can be confusing--and quite often prompts some fear:

What if I say or do the wrong thing?

What if there is pushback?

And where do I even begin?

This podcast series provides real-world advice and reasonable, practical strategies on how you can create LGBTQ-inclusive classrooms. Check out our most recent episode!

This podcast series is funded by the New York City Council and developed by History UnErased in partnership with Making Gay History. To listen to more episodes, click the Podcast button below or find us on Apple PodcastsSpotifyGoogle PodcastsiHeartRadio, Amazon Music, or Stitcher.
