Why We Support Them

The historical knowledge they preserve is an invaluable resource for understanding the challenges of the past and present, and inspiring a future of greater social justice for LGBTQ people.

Preserving the knowledge of what many went through as well as preserving the history of significant victories in the fight for inclusion and acceptance is important to a future that does not repeat the past.


About GLBT Historical Society

For 35 years the GLBT Historical Society has been committed to the twin goals of preserving and sharing LGBTQ history. They have grown significantly since 1985, from a living room full of boxes to professionally managed archive. With more than 900 archival collections and over 26,000 museum visitors each year, the society is now an international leader in the field of LGBTQ history, and one of the most important queer cultural institutions in the world. 



The GLBT Historical Society collects, preserves, exhibits and makes accessible to the public materials and knowledge to support and promote understanding of LGBTQ history, culture and arts in all their diversity.



They envision a world in which LGBTQ people are appreciated and celebrated by one another in all their diversity and by all people for their contributions to history and culture.

They envision a world in which everyone can learn about LGBTQ history as a vital means for promoting civic engagement, social justice, and political change.

They envision a world in which LGBTQ people find acceptance, strength, and pride in acknowledging their heritage and in sharing it with society as a whole.
