GLBT Historical Society News

Brilliant news from the GLBT Historical Society in San Francisco. They report that thanks to a generous grant from the National Historical Publications and Records Commission - an agency of the U.S. National Archives - the GLBT Historical Society is busy surveying its more than 600 manuscript collections.  Titled Hidden from History: Accessing the GLBT Past, the initiative also will involve processing half of the society's backlog of archival collections so the materials will be ready for use by curators, researchers, filmmakers, students and other patrons.

I've had first hand experience of using the superb archive.  It's an asset for sexuality researchers across the globe and this latest funding means there is potentially even more wonderful material that will now be available to researchers and enhance our collective understanding of sexualities and our lived experiences.

great news I have used their online resources before, which inspired some scenes in my novel about Foucault.
