Administrative history

The Nova Scotia LGBT Seniors Archive is a project aimed at collecting, preserving and making available the records of contributions made to Nova Scotia by the baby boomer generation (born ca. 1946-1964) of LGBT+ seniors. Founded in 2019 by Jacqueline Gahagan, the archive was developed with initial funding from the Nova Scotia Department of Seniors and is embedded in the Dalhousie University Archives. Since its inception, the LGBT Seniors Archive has developed a significant collection of records documenting the activities of and connections between LGBT-identified seniors across the province. To improve the representation of LGBT+ women and gender non-conforming individuals within the repository, the srchive, with funding support from the Department of Communities, Culture, and Heritage's Strategic Development Initiative, has created the Lesbian Oral Histories collection (MS-15-26).
