Digital Transgender Archive

Based at the College of the Holy Cross in Massachusetts, the Digital Transgender Archive (DTA) is an international collaboration between more than 50 institutions that aims "to increase the accessibility of transgender history by providing an online hub for digitized historical materials, born-digital materials, and information on archival holdings throughout the world." Visitors to this project will find digital collections of more than 8,000 items sourced from a variety of universities, libraries, archives, and private collections worldwide. DTA's holdings can easily be browsed by location, institution, collection, topic, or genre, and the entire archive is searchable and can be filtered by date, language, and other fields. While some of the items in DTA's collections may be considered explicit, for these items the DTA provides prompts that require users to confirm that they are not minors and that they consent to view the materials. For readers who may be less familiar with transgender history, the DTA has created two helpful guides: one about the DTA and transgender history in general and one that focuses on race and ethnicity as they intersect with transgender history. A Glossary and a list of Global Terms, all of which can be found under Learn.
