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
- The form below
Contributions that fit the project scope are being preserved and made accessible to all as The LGBTQuarantine Archive Project Collection. With permission, we may share individual contributions over social media or in programming. See a trio of exhibits showcasing the project at our Google Arts & Culture page. Reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions, and thank you.
