We need your help to continue preserving, sharing, and making accessible LGBTQI histories in Arizona. Please consider being a monthly sustainer or making a one time contribution here. Under “where would you like to designate your gift,” please specify “the Arizona Queer Archives.”

“[LGBTQ- identified] archives provide evidence of lives having been (or being) lived while also imagining a future. [The] long-term sustainability of community archives, then, is integral to such imaginings and makes urgent the need for new funding models that are aware and can incorporate the relational power of archival productions and their effects today and over time.”
