Often referred to as San Francisco’s “queer Smithsonian,” the GLBT Historical Society is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that houses one of the world’s largest collections of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender historical materials.
The GLBT History Museum in San Francisco’s Castro District—a project of the GLBT Historical Society—is the first full-scale, stand-alone museum of its kind in the United States. The museum currently features a long-term exhibition, “Queer Past Becomes Present,” as well as changing exhibitions in the Front Gallery and Community Gallery.
