About the Queer Omaha Archives
The Queer Omaha Archives was established at the University of Nebraska at Omaha Libraries’ Archives and Special Collections in 2016 to collect, preserve, and share historical material documenting Omaha’s diverse LGBTQIA+ communities. The historical material in the Queer Omaha Archives is shared with the community through presentations to school and community groups, exhibits, research projects, and online digital collections.
Dozens of individuals and community organizations have donated their collections of historical material to UNO Libraries’ Archives & Special Collections to create an archive that is over 70 cubic feet with 3 GB of digital records in size and actively growing. The collections include posters, flyers, photos, scrapbooks, films, meeting minutes, oral history interviews, correspondence, ephemera as well as regional newspapers, magazines, and newsletters.
