People with a History: An Online Guide to Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Trans* History
People with a History presents
the history of lesbians, gay men, bisexuals and transgendered people [=LGBT]. It includes
hundreds of original texts, discussions, and [soon] images, and addresses LGBT history in
all periods, and in all regions of the world.
Browse the Contents guide below to access a series of large
index pages which will then link you directly to the texts and images that interest you.
In addition to texts, the site includes other aides to help you study, or just make
sense of LGBT history - note especially the guide to online
bibliographies and the onsite bibliography [which is the
most up-to-date and complete bibliography of LGBT history available]
If you want to learn more about the goals behind this site, see the introductory
chapters Introductory Chapter and if you wish to get
straight (!) to current debates about the nature of LGBT history go to Chapter 1 on History and Theory .

It is a specific goal of People with a History to avoid
complex web hierarchies, and continual mouse-clicking. It proved - in the draft version of
this site on AOL - to be too cumbersome to have only one main index page.
The various chapters are now grouped in sections. The contents of all the chapters in
each section can be accessed via the contents page for that section.
The old style All-in-One Page
is still available, but will not be updated
