40 years ago, Gerber/Hart Library and Archives was founded. Since then, many things have changed, but the mission of Gerber/Hart has remained the same: to collect and preserve LGBTQ history in Chicago and the Midwest, and to make it accessible to all.
History continues, as it always does, and the collections and accessibility of Gerber/Hart have expanded and deepened to keep up with history’s progress—and to serve an ever wider spectrum of people not just in Chicago, but around the country and the world.
Support from individuals like you ensures that Gerber/Hart continues to preserve LGBTQ history—both as a safe, welcoming physical location open to the public, and as an ever-growing online and social media resource available to the world.
Your gift allows Gerber/Hart’s continued expansion to meet these needs as history continues to grow, and the desire to experience it expands.
