By bus from the Sheraton Hotel, we begin our day at ONE National Gay & Lesbian Archives, the oldest active Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, Questioning (LGBTQ) organization in the United States and the largest repository of LGBTQ materials in the world, part of the University of Southern California (USC) libraries.  

Back on the bus for another 10 minutes, we arrive at the William Andrews Clark Memorial Library, a University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) rare books and manuscripts library that is 13 miles east of the main campus. The collection’s particular strengths are in English literature and history (1641-1800), fine printing, and the world’s most comprehensive collection materials by and relating to Oscar Wilde and his circle.

We continue on the bus to main campus of UCLA, to learn about the Outfest Legacy Project. A collaboration between Outfest and the UCLA Film & Television Archive began in 2005. “The only program of its kind in the world, the Outfest Legacy Project is aimed at the growing crisis in lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender moving image archiving. Many of the landmark LGBT films produced over the last 30 years are already in danger of fading away, their original exhibition prints in tatters, their negatives in woeful storage conditions…or even lost.”

Then we'll visit the Chicano Studies Research Center, the first library in the United States to focus on the Mexican-descent population. Today, it is considered to hold among the most important national and international research collections in existence on the Chicana and Chicano experience with holdings of monographs, periodicals, subject files, dissertations and theses, as well as original prints by Chicana/o artists, films, videotapes, audio recordings, slides, and over 120 archival and manuscript collections. The Center’s director Chon Noriega, Professor of Film, Television, and Digital Media will be the Saturday Plenary Session speaker during the conference.

The tour continues with a look at a LGBTQ-related selection of archival collections in UCLA’s Special Collections including the Mazer Lesbian Archive, the largest archive on the West Coast dedicated to preserving and promoting lesbian and feminist history and culture; the papers of Evelyn Hooker, a UCLA psychology professor whose research comparing the mental health of homosexual and heterosexuals males is thought to be the major reason the American Psychological Association (APA) began advocating for acceptance of homosexuality; and the collection of Paul Monette, a novelist and poet who is well-known for his poignant writings about his experience with AIDS. 

Box lunches will be provided.
