Launched by OkEq in 2002, The Tulsa Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender (LGBTQ+) History Project uncovers, preserves and presents the rich contributions of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people within the state of Oklahoma, with a particular emphasis on Tulsa and the Northeast Oklahoma area.

The History Project seeks to understand the contributions, sacrifices, and dedication of our LGBTQ+ community and its many supporters through gathering and indexing documents, sponsoring lecturers/speakers, writing news stories, conducting oral and video interviews, and creating a permanent and accessible archives at the Dennis R. Neill Equality Center.

As of 2023, the History Project has been revitalized after an extended period of inactivity. The task of updating this archive is a massive undertaking that will be carried out well into the foreseeable future. Many public posts are incomplete at this time, but will soon be filled in with the appropriate transcripts, descriptions, attributions and more. If you have questions, comments, or concerns with any of the postings in this catalogue, please email Archivist Regis McDaniel at regis.mcdaniel@outlook.com.

If you or someone you know are present in any of our photo collections (particularly our Pride collections), please reach out with your name and any other information you would like to include so that we can describe our images more accurately! Alternatively, if you find your photo in our archive and would like it removed for any reason, please let us know and we will make the applicable images private (viewable only by the archivist and OkEq staff).
