Gerber/Hart is raising money for Season 2 of its podcast, and to upgrade technology in the Library!


raised by 24 people

$2,000 goal

Gerber/Hart -- the largest LGBTQ+ library and archives in Chicago and the Midwest -- is raising money to produce Season 2 of its acclaimed podcast Unboxing Queer History, and to upgrade its technology and infrastructure. 

Any donation of $10 or more given from June 1  - June 28, 2023 will help us compete for cash prizes on Give OUT Day! 

PLUS, two of our amazing supporters have agreed to match donations up to $5,000 -- so the impact of your gift will effectively be doubled.

For over 40 years, Gerber/Hart Library and Archives has preserved the history and stories of the LGBTQ+ communities in Chicago and the Midwest, and operated a free lending library to ensure people of all ages have access to thousands of queer-authored or themed books, movies, magazines, and more. 

I love Gerber/Hart! From the first time I walked into the library and saw the thousands of queer books available in a safe and welcoming space, to the moment I looked at a shelf in the archive and saw a dear departed friend's materials being preserved for posterity, I knew it was a special place. An organization has to really capture my heart for me to want to raise money for it, and Gerber/Hart did that immediately. 

Please join me in supporting this extraordinary non-profit organization. Thank you!
