Save the Sexual Minorities Archives House – My Home! Hello, Bet Power here. Many of you know me; some of you don’t. I am a 64-year old, disabled, transgender man; a queer historian and an activist archivist. I need your support as soon as you can give it. For 31 years, the Sexual Minorities Arch…
The Sexual Minorities Archive in Northampton, MA, needs help!
The Archive is a hugely important resource for queer history, activism, and community on the east coast that may soon be lost if the community can’t come together to save it. The current home of the archives is up for sale, and the curator/tenant Bet Power who has lived and worked there for 31 years needs to raise $10,000 this summer to help him secure necessary loans to purchase the property.
As someone who has used the Archives for research and is currently working as an intern, I can testify that this is a really special place and Bet deserves all the support he can gather. Today marks the collection’s 40th anniversary, and I would really hate to see it come to an end soon.
SHARE WHAT YOU CAN. PLEASE PASS ALONG. <3
Hey homies, Northampton is my hometown and queer people are my family and maybe your family too. Save our history!
