If you would like to volunteer to help document LGBTQ+ history in Georgia, there are a number of ways you can help our archivists:
The Georgia LGBTQ Archives Project is a group started by a group of dedicated archivists/librarians and community volunteers who want to see Georgia's LGBTQ past preserved for future generations. A lot of that history resides in people's photo albums, private letters, and papers. This group is committed to raising awareness among LGBTQ Georgians of the value of the items they have--such as those just listed as well as protest signs used in parades, t-shirts, flyers, etc.
"We want LGBTQ Georgians to become aware of the local archives interested in their items and to start considering donating their items when they feel the time is right. Too often family members may not recognize the historical value of one's keepsakes and may discard them after a death...our goal is to not allow any of Georgia's LGBTQ history to be lost in that way. And given the lack of mainstream coverage of LGBTQ issues in Georgia until fairly recently, most of our history resides with individual, everyday people."
