LGBTQ Pride Month
The National Archives holds extensive records created or received by the U.S. Government on issues of sexual identity and rights. We not only hold these records, we provide access to them.
The featured documents on this Tumblr blog reflect the history of American lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender men and women from 1778 to the present. The blog is a project of Stonewall@NARA, the National Archives LGBTQ employee affinity group.
