Lambda Archives of San Diego

Lambda Archives of San Diego

Lambda Archives of San Diego (LASD) has been established to preserve and make available for research and educational purposes the tangible record of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) community with a special emphasis on those materials relating specifically to San Diego County and northern Baja California. LASD views all aspects of LGBT life as important to the understanding of our communities' values, interests and issues. To this end, LASD actively seeks to acquire and preserve materials that reflect the diversity of our communities in respect to: gender and sexual identity; racial and ethnic identity; age; and the broad range of our communities' activities and concerns including politics and social activism, social groups, support groups, athletics, spiritual groups, arts and culture, business and finance, and general community resources. LASD collects not only material related to the communities' past history, but documents current events as well.
