Launch of the digital map „From Gay To Queer“

We are excited to announce that the digital map “From Gay To Queer” is published. 🔌✨

The map is a result of the project “Intersections & Constellations: A queer mapping project”. In a process of research, interviewing, mapping and contextualization, we have tried to understand how queer (sub)cultures have developed from its separated LGBTI* niches, with the focus on Bremen in the 1990s. 

The project was realised in the last months by members of the working group “Queer narratives, mapped”, contributors and facilitators.

A project by Thomas Böker, Dafne Jaramillo, Kyan Mitwollen, Brunn Morais, Laura Franziska Reyes Pollak and Ulf Treger, with editorial support by Jimena Stephanie Alvarez.

The voices, memories and materials are just a spotlight. They are so many other voices, narrations and traces, that hopefully will be collected and documented too.

The language of the map is mixed english and german.
