Paid Internships – LGBTQ Religious Archives Network

The LGBTQ Religious Archives Network (LGBTQ-RAN) is offering a thirteen-week (May 23 – August 19, 2021), part-time (10 hours a week), online internship for senior students or graduates seeking to develop skills in teaching with primary sources in LGBTQ religious history. The intern will design a lesson plan for high school history classes that incorporates primary sources to tell the story of LGBTQ movements within all religious traditions. The intern will be responsible to find and use resources from and beyond the LGBTQ-RAN website. The lesson plan will reflect current teaching goals and standards. Interns participate in LGBTQ-RAN staff meetings via videoconference every 2-3 weeks. Interns will provide their own office and equipment needed to carry out their work. Each intern will receive a stipend of $1,500.

The LGBTQ Religious Archives Network ((  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.
