History Colorado's LGBTQ+ Collecting Initiative

Dedicated to documenting the varied experiences of all Coloradans, History Colorado, in partnership with the Gill Foundation, is initiating a project to proactively build a research archive that preserves and promotes the contributions, history, and voices of Colorado's LGBTQ+ community.  The new History Colorado Gill Foundation LGBTQ+ Archive will encompass personal stories, community traditions, LGBTQ+ businesses, subjects specific to Colorado's LGBTQ+ community, and much more.

At History Colorado we strive to be a place of belonging for all Coloradans and to serve as a platform for community connection and co-creation.  We know that we're succeeding when more voices, perspectives, and experiences are part of History Colorado.  The LGBTQ+ collecting initiative will help us thoughtfully identify, collect, and make available to the public relevant documents, photos, oral histories and artifacts that help tell the compelling and complex story of Colorado's LGBTQ+ community.
