Queer Music History 101 (QMH101) is a special project of my radio show and website Queer Music Heritage. It was designed as sort of a study guide, or lesson plan, and I hope it appeals to those LGBT Studies courses now found at many universities around the country. But of course anyone with an interest will hopefully enjoy it.

Please see the description area for Part 1 for the introduction, background and scope of this ten-part feature. See specifically for the information about this lesson, and visit my website, at for more information about the history of GLBT music.

In general, use of the songs on my channel is done under the "fair use" doctrine of the U.S. Copyright law, Section 107, number 1. Section 107 contains a list of the various purposes for which the reproduction of a particular work may be considered fair, such as criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching, scholarship, and research. Section 107 also sets out factors to be considered in determining whether or not a particular use is fair, such as: The purpose and character of the use, including whether such use is of commercial nature or is for nonprofit educational purposes.
