We have listed some ways you can further support the project below!
You like this website and its mission and you want to chip in? You think this project should go on and you would like to support us? You would like to contribute to improving accessibility and you want everyone working on the project to be paid? Much of the work here has been done on a volunteer basis or compensated with a small payout from our funding budget. To be able to continue and to provide more translations and transcripts, among other tasks, we need more resources. You can donate to this cause!
You can donate money easily through Paypal or by bank transfer to the Schwules Museum. Click the link below for more information: https://www.schwulesmuseum.de/unterstuetzen/
- When you fill out your donation, please specify "Website YEAR OF THE WOMEN*" as the intended purpose.
- Please send an e-mail to the editors that indicates what you would like to donate for or a note that you have donated, so that we know about it directly and your commitment is not lost in the flurry of museum operations.
Aside from financial support, you can also volunteer your time! The Schwules Museum owes its existence to its volunteers. This allows the museum to remain as independent and accessible as possible. If you want to translate or illustrate a text, or transcribe a video, please contact the editors.
Ideas & Contributions
If you yourself have a contribution or an idea that would fit well in the YEAR OF THE WOMEN* archive, or if you would like to do research on the project, please contact the editors with your suggestion. Currently, however, we cannot offer payment for new contributions, because we plan to use any (possible) donations to compensate the work listed above first.
You would like your work from the YEAR OF THE WOMEN* to be included in the collection and archive of the Schwules Museum? Then feel free to contact the archive staff.
