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.
|A Class Act is a tradition for Portland's LGBTQ Community, a gift that keeps on giving. It's a fundraiser for the Bill & Ann Shepherd Legal Scholarship Fund, named for two of the founders of PFLAG Portland, which awards scholarships to 3rd and 4th year law students who are committed to social activism. Shepherd Scholars have been responsible for a large number of legal advances for the LGBTQ community. Ticketholders will recognize this year's scholarship recipients, hear fine music, and enjoy decadent deserts afterwards, at Portland's Old Church, April 28, 2017 at 7:30PM.
