The Philadelphia LGBT Mapping Project

by ilcorago

I know I haven’t posted here in a while, but for the past few months I’ve been focusing my attention on a new Facebook page called the Philadelphia LGBT Mapping Project.

Phila LGBT Mapping Project

The Mapping Project was inspired by the recent National Park Service LGBTQ Heritage Initiative to identify places across the country that are important to American LGBT history. The broader scope of the project allows me to cover locales in the Philadelphia area that are both inside and outside of the Gayborhood.

You’ll see some of the places in the Gayborhood I’ve covered here, as well as some new spots in the city that you may not be aware had LGBT historical significance.

I’ll be adding new posts here from time to time, but meanwhile take a look at The Philadelphia LGBT Mapping Project on Facebook.
