Founder & Chair, Stonewall 50 Consortium; Founder & Host, Making Gay History Podcast

Eric Marcus is the founder and host of the award-winning Making Gay History podcast, which mines his decades-old audio archive of rare interviews — conducted for his oral history book of the same name about the LGBTQ civil rights movement – to create intimate, personal portraits of both known and long-forgotten champions, heroes, and witnesses to history.

Eric’s other books include Is It A Choice?, Why Suicide?, and Breaking the Surface, the #1 New York Times bestselling autobiography of Olympic diving champion Greg Louganis.

He is also founder and chair of the Stonewall 50 Consortium, an organization of more than 200 organizations and institutions planning programming, exhibitions, and educational materials tied to the upcoming 50th anniversary of the Stonewall uprising.
