The UWM Libraries house important archives holding historical and contemporary LGBTQ+ materials. Included are rich records of LGBTQ+ communities in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and the Midwest generally. Not only do these archives contain textual documents such as community newsletters, advocacy group records, and personal letters-they also contain audiovisual materials. Examples include local television news and radio broadcasts, early LGBTQ+ community cable programming, and videorecorded oral histories.
