Queer Omaha Archives

The Queer Omaha Archives preserves Omaha’s LGBTQIA+ history as part of the UNO Libraries’ Archives & Special Collections. Historical materials documenting Omaha’s diverse LGBTQIA+ communities are collected and made available to the public to more widely share Omaha’s stories. Collections consist of both university and community created material.

We welcome opportunities to share the material already in the archives with individuals and organizations and are actively seeking additional material to preserve and share in the archives. Contact us for more information, to arrange a tour or presentation, to discuss donating material, to make a financial contribution to support LGBTQIA+ history in Omaha, or to learn about other ways to support the Queer Omaha Archives.

Statement on Harmful Material: Materials in UNO Libraries’ Archives and Special Collections are historical in nature and reflect the society in which they were produced. As such, they may contain racial, gender, sexual, religious, and other language and imagery that are offensive by today's standards. The documents, images, publications, and other materials have been retained in order to fully represent the materials in their original format. If the offensive text is not in the original, but in a finding aid, catalog record, or other description created by library employees, please contact Archives and Special Collections to bring this to our attention. Archives & Special Collections is guided by the core values of the Society of American Archivists. If you have questions about this statement or about Archives and Special Collections’ work, we welcome your feedback. Please contact us at unoasc@unomaha.edu or 402-554-6046.
