Special Collections and Archives had a booth at OC Pride 2013 in Santa Ana on Saturday, August 10, to share information about the collections in the LGBT Community Archives at UCI. We had a great time! It was a pleasure to meet representatives from a variety of community organizations, as well as small groups and individuals who were interested in our work and in the Archives.
Special Collections and Archives has a growing collection that documents the rich history of the LGBT community in Orange County. We met a variety of people this year with a wide range of interests, everyone was enthusiastic and supportive of the Archives and our efforts at documenting this history. We re-established connections we had made in the past, and were excited to make new friends representing new organizations in the community. It was an exciting and rewarding day!
Thanks again to the OC Pride organizers for their commitment and support. We very much appreciate it.
