STONEWALL NATIONAL MUSEUM & ARCHIVES
With a focus on the last quarter of the 20th century to the present day, the Archives comprise over 2,700 linear feet (twice the height of the Empire State Building) of items documenting LGBTQ political, cultural and social history.
The professionally organized collection, most cataloged with detailed descriptions, is maintained in an environment that meets strict conservation and archival standards. The Archives contain papers, books, objects, sound recordings (1973-1999), DVDs (2000 to present), VHS tapes (i.e., Falcon Studios, Kristen Bjorn, Colt Studios, etc.) and other media. While its initial focus was on Florida and Southeastern United States, the Archives contain materials from the entire country.
Used by scholars, historians, researchers, writers and members of the general public, access to the Archives is by appointment only. Please contact Chief Archivist Paul Fasana to schedule an appointment.
The majority of archival materials have been donated by individuals. If you would like to donate materials to the Archives, please contact Executive Director Hunter O’Hanian or Chief Archivist Paul Fasana.
