AtlanticHistoryAndArchivesNetwork

Halifax Gay & Lesbian Archival materials were gathered by the Atlantic History & Archives Network, from posters, ephemera, correspondence, publications and LOTS of other stuff relating to GaeGala, plus a variety of other materials.

The GAE/GALA materials have now been transferred to NovaScotiaArchives and Records Management, 6016 University Avenue, Halifax, B3H 1W4, where they are open to the public. A finding aid is available.

One name that you'll hear frequently with relation to archives is RobinMetcalfe; people will say, "Robin has everything." Robin's materials are largely not available for casual perusal.

Someday there might be an online index to materials in this collection.
