This archive illuminates the experiences of the LGBTQ community from 1940 to present. Historical records of political and social organizations founded by LGBTQ individuals are featured, as well as publications by and for the LGBTQ community, including personal correspondence and interviews, gay and lesbian newspapers from more than 35 countries, reports, policy statements, and other documents related to gay rights, health, and activism.
Much of history is one-sided, mainly focused on the male perspective; women's voices are not often heard. Women's Issues and Identities provides the opportunity to witness history from the female perspective. Global in scope, the archive presents materials covering the social, political, and professional aspects of women's lives and offers a look at the roles, experiences, and achievements of women in society. A wide range of primary sources provide a close look at some of the pioneers of women's history, a deep dive into the issues that have affected women, and the many contributions they have made to society.
Archives Unbound presents more than 300 topically-focused digital collections of historical documents covering a broad range of topics from religion, history, the Holocaust, LGBTQ history, global studies, international relations, and many more.
