LGBT Resources in Archives, Libraries and Museums

Around the country, archives and museums are gathering, researching, expanding and promoting LGBT collections.

Below are a selection of archives, libraries, museums and groups with relevant collections. Some have also produced guidance to assist researchers, which you can find on their websites.

This list is non-exhaustive and ever expanding and new additions are always welcome. The National Register of Archives aims to record as many of these as possible to make research in the area easier. Please send any contributions to
