LGBT Heritage Initiative Launch

While the National Park Service will be looking to identify a representative selection of LGBT sites associated with important events and people in our history as part of the initiative, we need the expertise of communities and individuals across the country to make the initiative a success. We know that gender, generation, geographic location, ethnicity and other factors play an important role in the histories of LGBT America, and it is important that all LGBT communities are represented. We want to hear from you about the places important in your communities; places that have local, state, or national importance in LGBT and American history.

The LGBT theme study will provide both historic context and preservation roadmap for future site nominations for both the NHL's and National Register of Historic Places. Owner approval for these sites is necessary before nominations can be prepared.

Please read the full details in the document.
