The LGBTQuarantine Archive Project
As our city endures the ongoing COVID-19 health crisis, and The Center (like so many places) has had to close its physical space, we know that our daily lived experience is more important than ever to honor. These everyday struggles and triumphs are always the focus of The Center Archive, which is why we are undertaking a new project to collect stories representing the impact of the pandemic and quarantine on our community. We hope this effort will connect us in solidarity today, and preserve our voices for the history that will be written tomorrow.
The LGBTQuarantine Archive Project asks you to be a part of history. Share your photos, artworks, memes, diaries and other electronic items now, and let the archivist know if you have physical items that you would like to donate once we re-open. Possible contributions include:
Writing: journals, poetry, stories, etc. (including excerpts)
Artwork: drawings, illustrations, paintings, etc.
Audio or video recordings
Social media posts, memes, website pages, screenshots
Contributions that fit the project scope will be compiled into a new collection to be preserved and made accessible to all, in perpetuity. With permission, we may share individual contributions in the meantime over social media or in programming. Reach out to email@example.com with any questions, and thank you.
