>>   IHLIA needs your financial support

IHLIA is on many counts an outstanding organization. It is putting together an extraordinary LGBTI archives, libraries, museums and special collections conference 2012.  IHLIA has received financial support from the Dutch Ministry for Education, Culture and Science, the Amsterdam Public Library and the Amsterdam network of cultural heritage institutions. Through crowd-sourcing funds through social media and messages to friends on the other hand, IHLIA intends to raise the remainder of the finances it needs to cover the costs of the conference.

IHLIA believes in a future in which all gay kids can visit public heritage institutions and find they are part of the ‘us’ that makes up society. Equally importantly, IHLIA believes in a future society that sees through the eyes of its cultural heritage institutions that LGBTI is part of who ‘we the people’ are. We are all part of the DNA that makes up our social history.

We invite friends and relations to donate to this vision.

  • Donations from € 75 - €100 will be rewarded with a replica of the famous Amsterdam Homomonument.
  • Donations from €101 - €250 will be rewarded with a copy of The Queer Dutchman: True Account of a Sailor Castaway on a Desert Island for Unnatural Acts and Left to God’s Mercy. This book, set in the 17th century, was the inspiration for Brazilian composer Cristiano Melli’s to write an opera. LGBTI ALMS 2012 participants will get a preview of the opera.
  • Donations above €250 will be rewarded with a full set of the proceedings of the conference on DVD.
