This collection documents the activities over 25 years of the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force, founded in New York in 1973, and its achievements for the civil rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender individuals in the United States.
Documenting NGLTF's pioneering work in changing the American Psychiatric Association's classification of homosexuality as a mental illness, this collection, which consists of correspondence, press clippings, financial and administrative records, subject files, and photographs, also covers anti-gay discrimination, violence against gay men and lesbians, legal questions, and other topics.
This collection will be of use to researchers in lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender studies, American studies, public policy, historians of the civil rights movement and the history of sexuality.
