Description
The GLAAD/SFBA records (1.65 linear feet) document the organization's range of activities from late 1989 to mid-1993. Any records prior to that time, and after its founding in 1987, have not been made available to The Gay and Lesbian Historical Society as of this date. The present records are divided into six series: administrative, controversies, projects and promotions, printed materials, and audio-visual. This collection is currently housed at the Gay and Lesbian Center of the main branch of the San Francisco Public Library (http://sfpl.org/index.php?pg=0200002501).
Background
In 1987 The Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation/San Francisco Bay Area (GLAAD/SFBA) was formed as a chapter of the GLAAD New York national office. However, in March 1990 GLAAD/SFBA elected its own Board of Directors, incorporated and received non-profit status as an independent entity.
Restrictions
Copyright to unpublished manuscript materials has been transferred to the Gay and Lesbian Historical Society of Northern California.
