The James C. Hormel Gay and Lesbian Center (the Center) is devoted to collecting, preserving, and providing access to material on all aspects of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender experience. The collection is national and international in scope though its primary focus is Northern California.
Materials from Gay & Lesbian Center's archival and manuscript collections, as well as pulp paperbacks, and video and audio recordings, indicated in our catalog by the location code SFH/GLC, can be requested at the San Francisco History Center Reference Desk on the 6th floor. Collections on deposit from the GLBT Historical Society are indicated (GLBTHS collection). For more information about archival and manuscript materials call 415-557-4567. Due to the rare and fragile nature of many of the materials, the San Francisco History Center has specific procedures to ensure the care of these items.
