LGBTQA+ History Month is observed annually in October to recognize and celebrate the achievements and contributions of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer/Questioning, Asexual community and those who support, nurture, and advocate for us. The Director of the Center developed and updates (as she is able) a UNL and Lincoln history timeline. If you have historical information related to the LGBTQA+ Community at UNL, please email
