Queer Omaha Archives
The Queer Omaha Archives preserves and provides access to the history of LGBTQIA2S+ life in the region. The archives collects, preserves, and makes available to the public material documenting the diverse people and organizations of the greater Omaha region and their experiences and work.
As we begin building the Queer Omaha Archives in 2016, we welcome opportunities to share the material already in the archives with individuals and organizations and are actively seeking additional material for the archives. Contact the Amy Schindler at the Criss Library for more information, to discuss donation materials, or learn about other ways to support the Queer Omaha Archives.
The types of materials the Queer Omaha Archives collect includes:
- posters & flyers
- local newsletters
- protest signs
- audio recordings
- meeting minutes
- diaries & journals
- local magazines
- business records
- oral history interview
- ephemera such as tickets, programs, etc.
- selected memorabilia such as button, t-shirts, etc.
