Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
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.
