Collection Description

Scope and Content Note

The Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender collection is an artificially created collection of single items relating to the history of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT) community from 1969-2011. It consists of scrapbooks created by Willis Bivins which contain photographs and printed material from Georgia as well as a poster highlighting the divide between white and African American jobs in gay bars. The scrapbooks document the history of the Gay Liberation Movement and various gay pride celebrations, including the first pride march in New York City, June 1970. The collection also includes three promotional materials for gay bars in San Francisco, California. There are also a number of promotional items including pins, t-shirts, and a bobble head doll of Bubba D. Licious along with photographs and awards for Atlanta's Armorettes' Homecoming celebration.
