Funding for the Private Birthday Party project relies on the generous support of its admirers.

Currently, we are focusing on funding initiatives that are crucial for the longevity of the project.

Every dollar of your donation will help us to:

  • gain professional high-res scans of each slide
  • obtain resources for conducting interviews with the individuals that were involved with the history of these photographs, who have reached out to us and want to share their stories

Please help this project keep momentum by contributing with a donation today.


We would like to send a special thanks to Stuart Hinds and the Gay and Lesbian Archive of Mid-America at the University of Missouri-Kansas City for housing a portion of the slides in their archive for educational purposes, and to the Kansas City community for their continued support and enthusiasm in the project.
