LGBT Materials in the New York Public Library

New York City is an important location in the history of LGBTQ activism, so it's not surprising that New York Public Library has a wealth of materials documenting the movement. LGBTQ Materials in the New York Public Library is a super-collection, composed of hundreds of documents, photographs, post cards, and more. Many of these items were originally archived by the International Gay Information Center (IGIC) and donated to the New York Public Library in 1988. Subsequently, other archives and collections were also added. Readers may want to begin with the About section, which gives an historical overview of New York City's activist groups from 1950s through the '90s and offers related resources for those looking to learn more. To browse the collection, readers can use the Navigation section, which features drop-down menus specific to particular groups and individuals within which users may view by material type. Some of the activists and organizations represented include Act UP New York, photographer Diana Davies, and artist Emilio Sanchez. Those interested in a more selective search can also use the Filters section to navigate by material topic, collection name, genre of media, and more.
