The ArQuives – Canada's LGBTQ2+ Archives
The New York Public Library is now offering grab-and-go service at 50 locations as part of our gradual reopening. Find a location near you, and learn about our remote resources. Records include board of directors materials, a fairly comprehensive collection of newsletters, and information on GMAD's funding sources. Documentation on the organization's earliest years are augmented by transcripts of oral history interviews with both early and active members. The organization represented the largest constituency of black gay men on the East Coast, and it is the nation's largest and oldest black gay organization dedicated exclusively to the welfare of black gay men. The monthly newsletter has featured a schedule of GMAD's programming and original reporting, as well as information about the organization. GMAD continues to host community social events, educational seminars, and weekly forums on issues related to public policy and advocacy.

Kelly remembers that one of his fraternity brothers held his bachelor party at the Beige Room, a drag queen showplace in San Francisco. Many of Kelly's friends did not know Kelly was gay and even though he was having trysts with men, Kelly did not think of himself as homosexual.
Since , we have been working to discover and publicize the history of sexual minorities in the Pacific Northwest. We collect, preserve, document, and share as much as we are able. We help individuals and groups preserve their own historical data. We try to find a home for historically significant materials when they become available.
