Eric Marcus presenting at Guggenheim Partners LLC, New York City, June 18, 2019.



Eric Marcus, founder and host of the Making Gay History podcast, draws on his decades-old audio archive of rare interviews with LGBTQ champions, heroes, and witnesses to history to bring the history of the LGBTQ civil rights movement to life through the voices of the people who lived it. The virtual or in-person 45-minute presentation (+15-minute Q&A) includes audio clips from interviews with both the well-known and the long-forgotten.

“Thank you for your wonderful visit to Trinity and for speaking to students and faculty of the upper school. So many of those who attended said to me afterwards how much they enjoyed your presentation and in many ways how pleasantly surprised they were by it! By that I mean they had expected a more routine informal talk, but instead they were delighted that you presented the voices of those whom you had interviewed and combined this with a very polished narrative that explained clearly the context and history (along with delightful personal anecdotes) surrounding each one. Well done!”

—Peter Donhauser
History Teacher
Trinity School

“I can’t thank you enough. You were just wonderful; I could feel how much the students, faculty and staff were interested, both at the dinner and the presentation itself, which … is a gorgeous piece of storytelling, riveting in every moment. But it’s your ease and your warmth that makes me feel the dinner could have gone on another hour, and the discussion after the presentation could continue for days… You gave us all so much.”

“Thank you for spending time with our Pride Network! Your insights, background, and storytelling bring to life the rich, oral history presented in your book. You’re an incredibly gifted LGBT+ historian (and a ‘heimisha’ individual, too!).”
