Making Gay History

Eric Marcus (he/him) is the founder and host of the award-winning Making Gay History podcast, which mines his decades-old audio archive of rare interviews—conducted for his oral history book of the same name about the LGBTQ civil rights movement—to create intimate, personal portraits of both known and long-forgotten champions, heroes, and witnesses to history.

Eric’s other books include Is It a Choice?, Why Suicide?, and Breaking the Surface, the #1 New York Times bestselling autobiography of Olympic diving champion Greg Louganis.

He is also founder and chair of the Stonewall 50 Consortium, an organization of over 200 organizations and institutions committed to producing programs, exhibitions, and educational materials related to LGBTQ history and culture.
