IHLIA Open Up!  is an unique and dynamic project whose goal is to expand its collection with help from many different LGBT archives and special collections across this region. In this way we are able to open up more LGBT history and therefore gives a better reflection of the special, diverse and colourful LGBT community. We are excited to be part of something which is never done before. Open Up! gives you and/or your organisation also the opportunity to pioneer with us, we can learn from each other. Because only together we can share that we are proud of our history.
