  • Description The Archives of Sexuality & Gender facilitates scholarly research in the area of LGBTQ history and activism, cultural studies, psychology, sociology, health, political science, policy studies, human rights, gender studies, and more. Fully-searchable, this database is currently composed of two sub-collections on LGBTQ History and Culture since 1940. Part I contains 1.5 million pages of primary sources on social, political, health, and legal issues impacting LGBTQ communities around the world, featuring historical documents published in more than 35 countries, with over 15 languages represented. Part II offers access to periodicals, newsletters, manuscripts, government records, organizational papers, correspondence, an international selection of posters, and other primary source materials. Part II strives to provide coverage of underrepresented communities through access to key publications, highlighting often-excluded groups—even within the LGBTQ community. The contents of this collection are available for text analysis and data mining through Gale's Digital Scholar Lab.
