New Addition: Records of the LGBTQ Center

A flyer decorated with a Tar Heel foot symbol, with a downward pointing triangle as the tar on the heel. The flyer reads "Monday Aug. 29th 8:00 PM B-GLAD Bisexuals, Gay Men, Lesbians, and Allies for Diversity Manning 209. On the right is a list of "Tips for Coming Out Every Day."

We’re excited to announce a recent addition to the Lesbian, Gay, Transgender, and Queer (LGBTQ) Center Records in the University Archives!

The cover of an event program that reads "Queerniversity: Testing your LGBT IQ." It also reads "unity 2005."

The LGBTQ Center, established in 2003, works to make the UNC campus a welcoming environment for people of all sexual orientations, gender identities and gender expressions.

The new addition includes materials documenting events and programs sponsored by the Center in the 2000s, as well as materials from organizations predating the LGBTQ Center, including the Carolina Gay and Lesbian Association (CGLA) and its successors, Bisexuals, Gay Men, Lesbians and Allies for Diversity (B-GLAD) and Queer Network for Change (QNC). The addition also includes a wealth of newspaper and magazine clippings and ephemera documenting events related to LGBTQ issues on campus, in the local area, and beyond in from the late 1980s through the 2000s.
