The LGBTQ Religious Archives Network (www.lgbtqreligiousarchives.org) is an innovative venture in preserving history and encouraging scholarly study of LGBTQ religious movements around the world. LGBTQ-RAN has a two-fold basic purpose. First it assists LGBTQ religious leaders and groups in determining how best to preserve their records and papers in appropriate repositories. Secondly, LGBTQ-RAN provides an electronic information clearinghouse for these archival collections and other historical data—such as biographical profiles, oral histories and digital exhibitions—about LGBTQ religious history for the use of historians, researchers and other interested persons.

To apply for an internship, please send cover letter and resume detailing relevant education and experience by July 31, 2023 to: LGBTQ-RAN Executive Director Mark Bowman at mark@lgbtqreligiousarchives.org
