Welcome To The LGBTQ+ Museum

We’re in the early stages of this journey, and we hope you join us!



Hello! We’re The American LGBTQ+ Museum, a new collaboration dedicated to preserving, researching, and sharing LGBTQ+ history and culture.

While other great institutions and organizations exist to investigate, preserve, and tell our histories, we believe a national LGBTQ+ museum is overdue.

In the years to come, our plan is to create a physical space in New York City — one that is vibrant and welcoming, both visually and cognitively, for the entire LGBTQ+ community.

We will incubate with The New York Historical Society.

Sign up for updates by joining our mailing list, and please share your thoughts and ideas with us.
