For the initial full text submission for review, authors are requested to submit the paper as a single pdf-file.

Der Fachverband Homosexualität und Geschichte ist der Dachverband für die unterschiedlichen Initiativen und Projekte zur Erforschung und Dokumentation gleichgeschlechtlicher Geschichte. Er ist der Zusammenschluss von an der Geschichte gleichgeschlechtlicher Liebe, Erotik und Sexualität interessierten Männern und Frauen.
Die schwul-lesbische Geschichtsforschung hat in den vergangenen Jahren in zahlreichen unabhängigen Projekten daran gearbeitet, Homosexualitäten aller Geschlechter in unterschiedlichen Epochen zu rekonstruieren. Es entstanden zahlreiche Archivprojekte, Museen und historische Vereine neben vereinzelten universitären Forschungsprojekten.
