Personal Collections

The SMA houses Personal Collections from individual writers, artists, and activists who donated their materials to our community grassroots archive. These include the personal papers of individuals, such as diaries, letters, notes, manuscript drafts, published and unpublished books, personal correspondences, papers, sketches, memorabilia, and other documents and items. The Personal Collections in the SMA do not only reflect the lives of “famous” LGBTQI people. We seek to preserve and document the lives of all sexual orientation and gender identity minorities in our Personal Collections.

Below is a list of the Personal Collections in the SMA. Click on the name of the individual you wish to learn more about and you will be able to download a finding aid to that collection.
