LGBT Religious Archives Network

Anyone interested in LGBT religious movements will want to check out the Center for Lesbian and Gay Studies in Religion and Ministry’s website LGBT Religious Archives Network (LGBT-RAN). Based out of Berkley, CA, LGBT-RAN is a virtual archive that offers a wide range of free research materials including oral histories of movement activists, a profiles gallery featuring people seeking justice for LGBT individuals in religion, and an impressive collections catalog listing related research collections all over the world.

To give you a better idea of the project’s vision, their mission statement reads:

LGBT-RAN coordinates and supports the identification, collection and preservation of personal papers and organizational records from lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender religious movements. To encourage scholarly research and historical study of these important movements for social change, LGBT-RAN disseminates information about these records and provides and facilitates access to them, using digital technology when possible.
