GLAPN has been collecting, documenting, and sharing the LGBTQ history of the Pacific Northwest, especially Oregon, since 1994. Our history is community based, which means it is told and recorded by the community that made the history.

Although GLAPN has always been an all-volunteer organization, our research is used by academics and attorneys. To celebrate our 21st birthday, we presented an exhibit of historical materials in the Aaron Hall Gallery at Q Center during the month of February 2015.

About 100 enthusiastic people attended the exhibit’s opening reception on Thursday, February 5. Special thanks to Bill Dickey for providing an excellent array of finger food, and to GLAPN president Robin Will for producing the impressive display. Much of the content can still be viewed in our article “A Place at the Table” at
