Panel Discussion

While academics and practitioners within the urban planning field are increasingly engaged with queer spaces that serve the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and intersex (LGBTQI+) community, there is little data or archival material to better understand these communities. The lack of widespread and accessible data hinders the work of researchers and practitioners who are trying to fill the gap in this area of study and serve the needs of these communities. At the same time, in the United States and around the globe, there is an effort to record queer histories, stories and experiences.

From attempts to be more inclusive in census efforts to expanding oral history projects, there is a concerted effort to expand the visibility of LGBTQI+ communities in urban planning, as a means to fully address their needs and develop inclusive urban environments. This fireside chat-style discussion will bring together practitioners and archivists who are strengthening and expanding our understanding of queer archives, data and stories.
