Documenting local LGBTQ+ history in Glendale: Voices from the community

About This Project

Glendale Library, Arts & Culture seeks to document the history of Glendale’s LGBTQ+ community through audio and video firsthand testimonies and conversations.  

In our work to document local history, we recognize that we are missing vital stories and records from our LGBTQ+ community members. This community collections project  is a step towards filling these silences. 

GLAC is calling for these submissions in order to document Glendale’s unique LGBTQ+ culture and history to help inspire diversity, inclusion, and create a sense of  community that has not been publicly visible for the past several decades.
