Often referred to as San Francisco’s “queer Smithsonian,” the GLBT Historical Society houses one of the world’s largest collections of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender historical material.

The GLBT History Museum is the first full-scale, stand-alone museum of its kind in the United States, located in the heart of the historic Castro District of San Francisco.

The archives contain papers, photos, art and artifacts, ephemera and audiovisual recordings spanning a century of queer history.
