Documenting LGBTQ Life: Our Archival Program

The archival part of our project consists of collecting materials such as personal papers, records of organizations, businesses, service agencies, churches, student groups, bars, Pride Marches, and other similar community events. Photographs of celebrations, daily life, ephemera, newsletters, correspondence, and similar items, are sought as well.

The aim is to preserve and make accessible the full range and diversity of lives and cultures of lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, queer and other allied individuals in our area.
