Trial access: Archives of Sexuality & Gender – LGBTQ History and Culture Since 1940, Part I and II

February is LGBT History Month. To celebrate we’re again bringing you trial access to Archives of Sexuality & Gender – LGBTQ History and Culture Since 1940. This archive presents important aspects of LGBTQ life in the second half of the twentieth century and beyond. We set up a trial last LGBT History Month too. Since then, the archive has expanded.

LGBTQ History and Culture since 1940, Part I
Brings together approximately 1.5 million pages of primary source content on social, political, health, and legal issues impacting LGBTQ communities around the world, including the gay rights movement, activism, the HIV/Aids crisis, and more. Documents are sourced from top libraries and archives like Canadian Lesbian and Gay Archives, GLBT Historical Society, New York Public Library, Lesbian Herstory Educational Foundation, Inc., and others.

LGBTQ History and Culture since 1940, Part II (2017)
Emergence of Sexualities, 1860 – 1950 (2017)
Early Modern Gender and Sexuality, 1600 – 1860 (2018)

We’d love to know what you think. Please send your feedback to collections@nottingham.ac.uk.  Last year, many of you made good use of the trial and gave us really positive feedback. Unfortunately, we don’t currently have the funds to give you permanent access to this resource.
