About the event - Longer description than teaser, including any other necessary details such as cover charge, age requirements, Covid considerations.:
RI LGBTQ+ Community Archive at PPL is a community archives initiative to collect and provide access to the current and past stories of LGBTQ+ people in Rhode Island. We are focused on ensuring the preservation of materials chronicling the social, cultural & political history of RI LGBTQ+ people and organizations.
We strive to develop collections & resources that reflect the full range of the lived experiences of Rhode Island's LGBTQ+ communities. We especially aim to reflect key perspectives on the issues and experiences of those who have been historically marginalized in mainstream LGBTQ+ movements including Black, Indigenous, Latinx, disabled, trans and gender non-binary, economically disenfranchised, and otherwise marginalized people.Collections
We are actively collecting materials to document LGBTQ+ people in Rhode Island. Some of the materials that may be of interest to researchers include:
- AIDS Project Rhode Island Archives
- Equity Action oral history collection
- Options Magazine, 1982-current
