Oral History Interviews
The UNO Queer Omaha Archives is now collecting oral history interviews from community members. The archives is in the early stages of this immense and ongoing project and would appreciate hearing from community members who would like to be interviewed, would like to suggest someone who should be interviewed, or would like to make a financial contribution to support this LGBTQIA+ oral history initiative in Omaha.
Update (September 2017): The Queer Omaha Archives is pleased to announce that the UNO Libraries received a $2,000 grant funded by Humanities Nebraska and the Nebraska Cultural Endowment. The LGBTQ+ Voices: The Queer Omaha Archives Oral History Project includes a free oral history workshop (October 2017) for the public and the collection of 20 oral history interviews by May 2018. A part-time Oral History Associate will begin conducting interviews for this project in October 2017.
