The collection consists of newspaper clippings, publications, and ephemera about Orange County, California's gay and lesbian
communities. The materials were collected by multiple individuals as part of the Orange County Historical Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual
and Transgender (LGBT) Timeline Project.
The Orange County Historical LGBT Historical Timeline Project was started in 1995 by Barbara Muirhead to provide background
information to participants of the Orange County Federation of Lesbian, Gay, and HIV/AIDS support organizations. That same
year, UC Irvine opened the first Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual Resource Center in the University of California System which hosted
the first online version of the Timeline. Since the project's inception, researcher Dick Hitt has also contributed information
and materials to the collection.
