Queering the Collections is an ongoing networkgroup focused on the importance of preserving and presenting queer history and culture. As many archives and museums strive to become more inclusive institutions with greater relevance for diverse audiences, staff and visitors are encountering new challenges as well as opportunities. Building on similar efforts in the UK and USA, this Netherlands-based project unites people working in museums, archives, libraries, galleries, community organizations, and universities, in a joint effort to collect material culture and oral histories documenting queer life past and present, and to present these collections in partnerships with the public.
