Being LGBTQ in the Lowcountry

The Documenting LGBTQ Life in the Lowcountry Project focuses on the past, present and future of our community. All are invited to participate in as many ways as possible.

Where are the statues or markers dedicated to an LGBTQ person in the Lowcountry? Or the local sources that tell our stories, past and present? We can make history only when we record and preserve it. To that end, we want to document the lives and experiences of our LGBTQ community - to celebrate our victories and learn from our losses by collecting archival materials and recording oral histories. YOUR STORY IS IMPORTANT, regardless of where you were born.
