The Wisconsin LGBTQ History Project, Inc. has been documenting and preserving the heritage of Milwaukee’s and Wisconsin’s local gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people since 1995. As an independent, volunteer-operated, not-for-profit, and largely self-funded organization, our mission is to reconnect Wisconsin with its lost heritage and hidden history, through ongoing research, presentations, publications, walking tours, and online resources.
We are the state’s largest digital repository of LGBTQ media and information, and one of the largest in the nation. We have been a primary source for articles, books, radio and video programs, and have been referenced by the Wisconsin State Historical Society, the Library of Congress, and other researchers. We offer all of these services at no cost to the community.
