The Queer Omaha Archives preserves Omaha’s LGBTQIA+ history as part of the UNO Libraries’ Archives & Special Collections. Historical materials documenting Omaha’s diverse LGBTQIA+ communities are collected and made available to the public by archivists and librarians to more widely share Omaha’s stories.


We welcome opportunities to share the material already in the archives with individuals and organizations and are actively seeking additional material for the archives. Contact us for more information, to arrange a tour or presentation for a group, to discuss donating material, to make a financial contribution to support the Queer Omaha Archives, or to learn about other ways to support the Queer Omaha Archives.
