In January 2006, Outlook Weekly and The Gay Ohio History Initiative formed a partnership with the Ohio History Connection (then known as the Ohio Historical Society) to preserve, archive and curate Ohio's LGBT history and culture. This is a ground-breaking partnership between Ohio's preeminent history preservation organization and LGBT Ohioans. Since then, a committee of volunteers and community leaders has been working to advance this project. A LGBT history collection plan has been developed and a plan to solicit and accept donations of historical items has been created. Further, the Ohio History Connection has named an LGBT person to their Development Board to assist in moving this project forward. Throughout this process, the Ohio History Connection has shown extraordinary support for this project from the Executive Director to the Development and Curatorial staff.
