The museum’s archives currently contain more than 5,000 items, and document a century of LGBT cultural and social history with an emphasis on the southeastern United States. The collection has been professionally catalogued and is maintained according to strict conservation standards. It is used by community leaders, writers, scholars, researchers, historians, and members of the general public. Among the many treasures in the archives are our extensive pulp fiction collection; organizational records of local, national and regional LGBT organizations; our large serials collection; personal records of local and national personalities; the Joel Starkey Collection; gay erotica –pictorial works; and LGBT ephemera, film, audio and oral histories. The Archives recently added a significant collection of material donated by the Dade Human Rights Foundation. Materials were also added to the collection from GLSEN of South Florida. ]
