Gay and Lesbian Archives of the Pacific Northwest

A group of community-based historians started Gay and Lesbian Archives of the Pacific Northwest (GLAPN) in October 1994.  GLAPN members are involved in many activities that promote a greater awareness and understanding of our long history - including processing collections and doing independent research. One of the best ways to gather our history is to interview members of the community and record their stories. GLAPN material is stored at the Oregon Historical Society in Portland.

Students will conduct and record an oral history and help process an archival collection.  Students will also learn about local queer history including the anti-gay ballot initiatives, early gay-rights groups, and social groups.
