History of the Georgia LGBTQ Archives Project
Established in 2011 by archivists and members of the LGBTQ community, the Georgia LGBTQ Archives Project works to preserve LGBTQ history in the city of Atlanta and the state of Georgia before it is lost. The project began when Ann Edmonds, manager of the Ponce de Leon branch of the Atlanta-Fulton Public Library, attended a Services and Advocacy for Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender Elders (SAGE) meeting in which members discussed down-sizing and discarding personal items related to the local LGBTQ activities. As a result of this early education and outreach, colleagues from Georgia State University, Emory University, the Atlanta History Center and Touching Up Our Roots began to meet regularly.
