2SLGBTQIA+ History Project

Launched by OKEQ in 2002, the History Project uncovers, preserves and presents the rich contributions of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people within the state of Oklahoma, with a particular emphasis on Tulsa and the Northeast Oklahoma area.

The History Project seeks to understand the contributions, sacrifices, and dedication of our community and its many supporters through gathering and indexing documents, sponsoring lecturers/speakers, writing news stories, conducting oral and video interviews, and creating a permanent and accessible archive at the Dennis R. Neill Equality Center.
