About

This exhibit contains materials related to LGBTQIA+ students at Stanford University and the surrounding community. New materials are being added on an ongoing basis. Stanford Libraries is privileged to have the collections it does, documenting both the LGBTQIA+ community at Stanford, and people and movements for LGBTQIA+ pride and freedom globally. This is a testament to the hard work of students, faculty, and staff (including in the libraries) in agitating for and committing to collecting, describing, and preserving these records of LGBTQIA+ community members. However, there is always more work to be done when it comes to the acquisition, description, and provision of access to the collections. We welcome feedback on the exhibit, as well as opportunities to discuss how we can partner to better document the LGBTQIA+ community, and ensure records of activism, community, and scholarship can support the work of future Stanford students!

Please also consider looking at the LGBTQIA+ community history at Stanford University guide for additional resources and context for the materials in this exhibit.
