Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Religious Archives Network

Website:  Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Religious Archives Network 


From the website (about us)
The LGBT Religious Archives Network (LGBT-RAN) is an innovative venture in preserving history and encouraging scholarly study of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) religious movements around the world.  LGBT-RAN has a two-fold basic purpose. 
 First it assists LGBT religious leaders and groups in determining how best to preserve their records and papers in appropriate repositories.  
Secondly, LGBT-RAN provides an electronic information clearinghouse for these archival collections and other historical data about LGBT religious history for the use of historians, researchers and other interested persons.  LGBT-RAN can best be understood as a "virtual" archive.  
It is not a physical repository that collects and preserves papers and records.  Instead, LGBT-RAN is a resource center that enables the preservation of history and makes historical information easily accessible through this web site.  Initiated in 2001 as a project of the Chicago Theological Seminary, LGBT-RAN has been a program of the Center for Lesbian & Gay Studies in Religion and Ministry in Berkeley, California, since 2008


Kijk eventueel naar de nieuwe informatie op de site van het Lesbisch Archief Nijmegen en the Lesbian History Timeline. De University of Michigan heeft speciale sectie met historische informatie.
