Material Donations

The SMA is always looking for new material to add to our archival collections. The materials should be by or about LGBTQI people and can include any of the following types. The material can be new or gently used or, in some cases, may be rare or historic.

  • Books (all genres)
  • Periodicals (magazines, newspapers, newsletters)
  • Multimedia (DVDs, CDs, VHS and cassette tapes, vinyl records and vinyl albums)
  • Art (paintings, drawings, illustrations, poster art, sculpture)
  • Textiles (banners, signs, wall hangings, articles of clothing, hand bags)
  • Personal Collections (letters, diaries, manuscripts, book drafts, poems, clippings)
  • Organizational Collections (internal papers of any LGBTQI non-profit or business)
