Interesting in researching LGBT history in Las Vegas in honor of LGBT Pride Month? UNLV Special Collections holds a number of significant manuscript and photograph collections that document the history of the LGBT community in Las Vegas. We also collect a number of local LGBT publications such as the Las Vegas Bugle, Q Vegas and Night Beat.  Our manuscript collections include the records of groups and organizations such as Equal Rights Nevada, Gay and Lesbian Community Center of Southern Nevada, Las Vegas Bugle, and the Las Vegas Men's Club, among others. Personal papers include Dan Hinkley, Eddie Anderson, Caratelli Collection, Strutt Hurley, Marge Jaques, Ted Lenhart, and many others.

In addition, a large collection of files (the Las Vegas LGBT Archives) compiled by local historian Dennis McBride provide wide ranging coverage of historical and contemporary issues facing the LGBT community in Las Vegas.  The Dennis McBride and Las Vegas Bugle photo collections feature hundreds of images of the LGBT Community from the 1980s-2000s.
