LGBTQ Heritage in Virginia:
DHR’s New Dominion Virginia initiative is developing an LGBTQ theme study in Virginia to provide both historic context and a preservation roadmap for future site nominations to the Virginia Landmarks Register and the National Register of Historic Places. Both the state and national registers, which are vital to Virginia’s preservation program, rely on individuals and communities to identify, research, and nominate historic places.
