About Cornell's Human Sexuality Collection:

The Human Sexuality Collection seeks to preserve and make accessible primary sources that document historical shifts in the social construction of sexuality, with a focus on U.S. lesbian and gay history and the politics of pornography. Through this program, Cornell University is working to ensure that a more complete historical record of sexuality will be available to researchers. The Collection was a pioneer of major research libraries paying close attention to sexual politics, and has become a world-renowned LGBTQ+ archive that attracts scholars from around the world to view its holdings in person.

The Collection was founded in 1988 upon a LGBTQ+ Cornell alum's vision, David Goodstein ‘54, who published The Advocate magazine and helped preserve documents of the gay and lesbian movement that were in danger of being lost or destroyed. He worked with the Cornell University Library to house the Mariposa Education and Research Foundation's archives and bequeathed a major gift to grow it. CUGALA has been supporting the Collection ever since. For more info, read about the Collection's history here and the Cornell Alumni Magazine's article about its 25th anniversary commemoration here.
