Minnesota NICE!
Making GLBT History in the Heartland
While almost everyone has heard of Stonewall and Harvey Milk, GLBT history was made in big and small ways all over the country. Minnesota has played a role in many important moments in GLBT history – from some of the first sex reassignment surgeries to the first gay marriage. We have something for everyone to be proud of as you will find in this brief survey of Minnesota GLBT history and the contents of the Tretter Collection in GLBT Studies at the University of Minnesota Libraries.
Lisa Vecoli is the curator of the Tretter Collection in GLBT Studies at the University of Minnesota Libraries. In her previous careers she has worked in shelters for battered women and in the political system. Her first involvement with the Tretter Collection was as a board member, solicited in the hope that her +4,000 book library might one day join the archive. Her goals are to preserve GLBT history and diversify the voices in the archive.
