  • Educate the community on the importance of ensuring that LGBT+ historical materials are archived and made available for future generations to access, research, & study

  • Promote the proper maintenance and preservation of historical LGBT+ materials

  • Provide an informational directory of archival resources where LGBT+ historical materials may be deposited or accessed for research and study
