The Northwest Lesbian and Gay History Museum Project
The Northwest Lesbian and Gay History Museum Project (NWGLHMP, or The History Project), founded in 1994, is an organization which researches, interprets and communicates the history of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people in the Pacific Northwest for the purposes of study, education and enjoyment. Recognizing that the history of this vibrant community has been sparsely and inaccurately recorded, the History Project seeks to:
- collect oral histories; locate photographs, ephemera, objects and documents; and work with archives to insure the preservation of these materials; and
- create public programs such as exhibits, publications and presentations to communicate the collective experience we have uncovered.
