About the Nova Scotia LGBT Seniors Archive

The Nova Scotia LGBT Seniors Archive is a collaborative, community-based project. Originally funded through the Nova Scotia Department of Seniors, the Nova Scotia LGBT Seniors Archive is dedicated to creating a searchable and accessible collection of materials that highlight the contributions and advancements made by older Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender individuals, as well as individuals from across Nova Scotia who experience other sexual and gender orientations. Records include materials from the Gay and Lesbian Association of Nova Scotia (GALA), Lesbian and Gay Rights Nova Scotia (LGRNS), Churchmembers Assembled to React to AIDS (CARA), and complete runs of the LGBT magazines Wayves and Gaezette. The Archive also houses physical objects such as buttons and oversized banners from marches and rallies.
