Thanks for visiting us!

Since 1994, we have been working to discover and publicize the history of sexual minorities in the Pacific Northwest.

We collect, preserve, document, and share as much as we are able. We help individuals and groups preserve their own historical data. We try to find a home for historically significant materials when they become available. We also gladly partner with organizations in the community to publicize and celebrate the history of all LGBTQ-identified minorities in Oregon and the Pacific Northwest.



This year we're marking the 30th anniversary of Ballot Measure 9, the effort of conservatives to rewrite Oregon's constitution to make homosexuality illegal.

GLAPN is working with other community organizations to produce a six-month series of programs remembering the good and bad parts of our response to Ballot Measure 9, and assessing the future of LGBTQ+ civil rights in light of recent legal and political developments.

QUEER
HEROES
NORTHWEST
  Follow this link to read more about, and see previous year's Heroes.
In 2012, GLAPN started naming a Queer Hero for every day in June, as part of our celebration of Pride. It has been a great way to recognize the history-makers of our community.
     
  We're pleased to promote these historic texts by GLAPN members and friends, along with information on how to purchase them.

  Since January, 2008, GLAPN has produced, or helped to produce, a number of events of historic interest to the LGBTIQQ community. Some programs mark significant anniversaries, some, such as the Our Stories Series, involve community activists and elders sharing personal reminiscences around significant issues.
