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.

Queer Heroes banner

It's time for Queer Heroes again! Every year for Pride, we nominate a Queer Hero for each day in June, and announce one Hero per day via our social media. Any member of our community, living or dead, straight ally or LGBTQ, is eligible. We're looking for folks who somehow made life better for the LGBTQ community. We'll display posters of all Heroes in the gallery at Q Center in June, and take the display to Pride with us! Nominations are open until April 30. Click on the Queer Heroes NW header above, or follow the links to our Queer Heroes main page to nominate one
or more persons for this honor.

  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.
