Get Involved

Like What We Do?
The Queer Newark Oral History Project (QNOHP) welcomes community participation!  To get involved with a particular aspect of the project, please contact queernk@newark.rutgers.edu. We are looking for volunteers in the following areas:

  • Interviewers: Conducting interviews with members of Newark’s LGBTQ community.
  • Transcribers: Transcribing interviews and reviewing transcripts for accuracy, ensuring that our historical archive is precise and up-to-date.
  • Website Assistants/Programmers: Helping to develop QNOHP’s website by writing and reviewing content for accuracy, and programming for a greater online experience. All volunteers are welcome, especially those with technical experience.
  • Designers: Designing promotional materials and flyers for QNOHP-related events. All volunteers are welcome, especially those with computer design experience.

Help Build the Archives!
Do you have a story to share about queer club spaces in Newark? Or, about queer Newark life? If so, we'd love to interview you for the Queer Newark Oral History Project. If you have photographs, letters, emails, documents, or other artifacts of queer Newark that you'd like to share, we can add them to our growing archive collection. Please contact us. We appreciate your support!
