Lesbian Herstory Archives

The Lesbian Herstory Archives of New York City began in 1973 as an outgrowth of a Lesbian consciousness-raising group at the Gay Academic Union. It is a non-profit organization and has strong political principles and is strictly focusing on identity politics (“Lesbian Nation”). But it is the oldest and one of the few Lesbian archives in the US, not to say in the world.

The Archives houses over 20,000 volumes, 12,000 photographs, 300 special collections, 1,600 periodical titles, 1,300 organizational and subject files, thousands of feet of film and video footage, art and artifacts, musical records and tapes, posters and T-shirts, buttons and personal memorabilia.
