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. This project is only possible with support from community members and organizations.
