The LGBTQ Archive

The UNT Libraries hosts a special collection, the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer (LGBTQ) Archive at UNT.  The archive is a repository for records documenting the history and culture of the LGBTQ communities in the South and the Southwest. This major collecting initiative documents people, places, and events through primary source materials, including letters, photographs, newspapers and magazines, scrapbooks, diaries, audio-visual materials, organizational records, posters, flyers, and objects.

The Archive includes a Resource Center, the Dallas Way Collection, the Charles Francis Collection, The Dallas Voice newspaper collection, the Betty Fairchild papers, and the Dallas NAMES Project collection.

Materials from the UNT LGBTQ archive have been used in documentaries, feature films, and research papers presented at national and international conferences.
