The arqive: An LGBTQ Digital Storytelling Map


ACLS Digital Justice Development Grants


Communication Studies


The arqive is an LGBTQ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans, Queer) digital storytelling map. It is an interactive repository of geographically and temporally located LGBTQ events and stories that presents narratives of LGBTQ history around the world, foregrounding principles of social justice, diversity, and inclusion through humanities perspectives. We are requesting support to build out the next phases of development: 1) continued technical development of the platform with additional UX/UI features such as gamification and AR; 2) content creation and research through collaborations with researchers, graduate assistants, and other institutions; and 3) outreach to community partners, sponsors, and the public to increase visibility and accessibility of this site and generate more user activity.
