JM! GLBT Historical society Mission Statement
Founded in 1985, the Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender (GLBT) Historical Society is recognized internationally as a leader in the field of LGBTQ public history. The successes of the LGBTQ movement are as unprecedented as they are under threat. The work of institutions like the GLBT Historical Society in maintaining the archives are critical tools for inspiring future generations to advocate for social justice. The Archives and Research Center are among the largest of their kind, attracting leading researchers from around the world. As the GLBT Historical Society renews its search for a permanent home, my hope is that making them the beneficiary of my Pride festivities will bring the visibility and extra funding necessary to make that campaign a success. San Francisco needs a permanent home for its LGBTQ museum, and you can help.
Loads of Love,
