HomeOur Mission is

Our Mission is

to collect, preserve, and promote an active knowledge of the history, arts, and culture of metropolitan Washington DC’s diverse LGBTQ communities.

That can be accomplished only if our collection, volunteer corps, and programming reflect and represent the full diversity of those communities and their allies.

It is therefore our fundamental policy to seek out the active participation and involvement of individuals of all backgrounds -- particularly those from under-represented groups -- who agree with and are committed to carrying out the goals of our organization.
