Quist is a LGBTQ history education organization focused on using creative tech solutions to teach “quistory” in youth-friendly ways.

Our free mobile app displays events from this day in LGBTQ and HIV/AIDS history. Over 900 historical events in the app paint a picture of how far the LGBTQ community has come over time — how we have been treated, how we have reacted, how our allies have supported us, and how others have worked vehemently to stop the progress. The app was released in July 2013 and is free for iOS (Apple), Android, and Windows phones and tablets.


In addition to our first product, Quist spreads LGBTQ history with social media campaigns, a video series, in-person and online talks and workshops, and more.
