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.

  We are proud to provide a forum for activists and scholars. Visit these pages to see what's in our online archive.
  See what's coming up, and what GLAPN has been up to in the recent past.
  Follow this link to read more about, and see previous year's Heroes.
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.
  Follow this link to see what's on GLAPN's You Tube channel.
  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.
  Our physical collections are part of the library at Oregon Historical Society. Visit this page to see what's in the GLAPN archive at OHS, and to review finding guides.
  Learn about our organization, our history, our community affiliations, and our ongoing activities.
