Mapping Early LGBT History in DC

March 28th, 2014  Tagged , , , ,

Mapping the main points/events in my early LGBT history in DC research was a lot easier than I expected it to be. I especially like that I can show the route of the First National March on Washington for LGBT Rights, because it makes it more interactive. The map shows how spread out the history is, and that isn’t even all of the points that I could have included. That’s just a brief look at the historical events that I am focusing on in the movement.

Mapping my project actually provided a lot of insight into my research because it made me realize that I need to narrow the focus of my research question, which I did. It also made me dig deeper into what societies and organizations I need to include as part of my project. I had to do a lot more research on the Mattachine Society of Washington in order to include it on the map, and that lead me to realize that I wanted to make that organization a central part of my research project.
