Speaker spotlight: Rebecka Sheffield

The Emergence, Development and Survival of Four Lesbian and Gay Archives

“This paper reports findings a multiple case study that looks at the trajectories and strategic actions at four community-led lesbian and gay archives. These are the Canadian Lesbian and Gay Archives (Toronto), the ONE National Gay and Lesbian Archives (Los Angeles), the June L. Mazer Lesbian Archives (West Hollywood), and the Lesbian Herstory Archives (Brooklyn). This project uses social movement theory to investigate the how these organizations were founded, the ways in which they have sustained themselves over the years, and the strategies they have used to acquire and manage limited resources. The study of lesbian and gay archives (and, indeed, all community-based activist archives) is enriched by social movement theory because this framework highlights the ways in which these organizations manifest social movement ideologies and goals.”

Canadian Lesbian and Gay Archives (CLGA)

Founded in 1973, the Canadian Lesbian and Gay Archives (CLGA) has grown to become one of the largest independent LGBTQ+ archives in the world. The archives was founded to aid in the recovery and preservation of our LGBTQ+ histories. Its mandate is to acquire, preserve, organize, and give public access to information and materials in any medium, by and about LGBTQ+ people, primarily produced in or concerning Canada. The CLGA aspires to be a significant resource and catalyst for those who strive for a future world where lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans people are accepted, valued, and celebrated.
