About the Online Magazine

Friends of Queer History publishes on its website research-based general information on Finnish queer history and its sources in the online magazine Writings of Friends of Queer History.

The magazine articles serve not only the general public, but also particularly researchers, memory and educational institutions. We publish texts mainly in Finnish and Swedish but also in English.

The online magazine’s ISSN is ISSN 2737-3908. In this manner articles are indexed in public databases and can be joined with the University’s research information systems in order to advance the social impact of both the writer and their organization.

Friends of Queer History was established in 2020 in order to advance the knowledge of history regarding gender and sexual minorities, as well as for the research, recording, and representation of queer history.

The online magazine is produced with the support of the Kone Foundation.
