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.


The Queer Omaha Archives is pleased to announce that UNO Libraries received a $2,000 grant in August 2017 funded by Humanities Nebraska and the Nebraska Cultural Endowment. The project includes a free oral history workshop for the public and the collection of 20 oral history interviews. UNO Libraries will provide matching funds from the Queer Omaha Archives Fund (fund code 01139120) established with the University of Nebraska Foundation


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.
