Event description
The Committee on LGBT History, in partnership with SF State and the GLBT Historical Society, is pleased to present QHC 2022.

About this event

The Committee on LGBT History, San Francisco State University, and the GLBT Historical Society will be hosting their second queer history conference, QHC 2022. Join historians, K12 educators, and activists to share, discuss, and debate the import of our collective past. Panels and workshops will showcase the newest directions and developments in the histories of same-sex sexuality, trans identity, and gender non-conformity. Our call for papers has already closed and a full program will soon be available on the Committee on LGBT History website.

Housing

Update April 13th: Housing is currently sold out but you may add yourself to the waitlist when you register.

Shared suites through San Francisco State University Housing are available to book for conference attendees.

If you are sharing a room your roommate must book separately. You must indicate your roommate's name at the time of booking.

You are required to pay in advance at the time of reservation for the entire four-night stay, even if you do not anticipate attending the entire conference. Unfortunately, we are unable to accommodate reservations on a per-night basis; those interested in dorm rooms must book for the entirety of the conference.

If you are booking a double room you will be required to indicate a roommate to reserve a room. The cost of a double room per person is $254.00 for the entire stay and includes daily breakfast. The cost of a single room is $450.00 for the entire stay and also includes breakfast. Payment is non-refundable.

Tentative Schedule

The majority of panels will be held in person, including special sessions dedicated to exploring LGBT history in the K12 classroom, as well as publishing, and public history. A small number of panels will present virtually in concurrent sessions. We will set aside a room for those in-person participants who wish to attend a virtual session. Zoom links will be shared in advance.
