Diversity Syllabi Project
In a project initiated by Cheshire Calhoun, the American Philosophical Association (APA) has been collecting syllabi from Philosophy courses that focus on the theme of diversity. At the Diversity Syllabi Project site administered by the APA, site users can find links to reading lists related to such themes as African American Philosophy; American Indian Philosophy; Asian Philosophy; Feminist Philosophy; Philosophical Perspectives on Disability Issues; Philosophy and Multiculturalism; and Gay and Lesbian Philosophy. The APA hopes that this site will encourage other instructors to develop courses of their own in these various fields, or to incorporate elements from topics which range from diversity, to art and aesthetics, to race and multiculturalism into more general Philosophy courses. There are a few broken links..

Stonewall and beyond: lesbian and gay culture
Stonewall and Beyond is an online exhibition published by the Columbia University Libraries. It was put together for the 25th anniversary of the Stonewall riots that took place in New York in 1969, and provides an introduction to key elements of gay history. The exhibition uses digitised primary source material and well-written narrative to explore gay and lesbian history before and after the Stonewall riots. Topics covered include the riots themselves, early writings on homosexuality by people such as Margaret Mead, Edward Carpenter, and Sigmund Freud, homosexuality across the centuries, and queer diversity.
This well-designed site on gay history is an excellent starting point for scholars of this subject. Written by an enthusiast, it covers the history of homosexuality from 1700 to 1973, focusing mainly on the United Kingdom and the United States. The main resource in the site is the timeline, which currently covers the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, although there is some information about twentieth century events and individuals. Each date links to an article, which appears in a summarised and a longer format.
Marginality and community in medieval Europe
Designed by history students of Kenyon College (Gambier, Ohio), 'Marginality and Community in Medieval Europe' offers a good introduction to a selection of medieval communities who found themselves socially isolated because of physical infirmities or what was regarded as deviant behaviour by medieval society. After a brief introduction to the topic, the site is divided into six major categories, covering medieval heresy, Jews, homosexuality, prostitution, leprosy, and witchcraft. Each sub-section offers some limited historical background about the relevant group’s status and, in the case of heretics, briefly explains the philosophies of such groups as Lollards, Waldensians, Beguines and Cathars. Perhaps the greatest strength of this site is the additional resources offered to users.
Russian gay culture
This is a unique web site providing information on the history of gay culture in Russia/Soviet Union. Created by Professor Kevin Moss from Middlebury College, Vermont, it starts with the description of the book entitled "Out of the Blue", edited by the author of the site, which offers a pioneering collection (in English) of literature on gay themes written by 30 authors, from the early 19th century to the post-Soviet times. From Pushkin and Tolstoy to Makanin and Aksyonov, it gives a broad picture of homosexuality in Russia. The site includes an English translation of the poem "Antinous" by Mikhail Kuzmin - the first major figure in Russian gay literature, and gives information on Yevgeny Kharitonov - a major gay underground writer of the Soviet times.
