Running until March 25, 2019 - the Pride Pin Collection has been donated by many various community members and organizations, and amassed over a lifetime of activism and political efforts. As with most early LGBTQ+ ephemera collections, some pins documents events and activities that were not covered by traditional and conservative new outlets. They offer an significant, and often underdocumented, historical record of gay rights activism; community organizations; national and local rallies; AIDs activism; and support organizations. Please contact the Archives & Special Collections if you wish to donate to the collection or have further questions concerning the materials.
Contact the LGBTQ+ Resource Center on campus in Campbell Student Union 105G, (716) 878-4633, or email the Student Leadership and Engagement Office. We are open Monday-Friday 10am-5pm.
If you would like to get involved in LGBTQ+ affairs on campus join the Bengal Allies! We are open to all faculty, staff and students who would like to build an inclusive environment on campus. Contact Dr. Char Vetter or Sean P. Terry for more information.
Madeline Davis Archive
The SUNY Buffalo State Madeline Davis LGBTQ+ Archives is actively soliciting donations of materials and further support. As Madeline Davis herself has said, “Our community has a past, but no history.” The presence and continued growth of the many collections in the Archives help to assure that our shared history will only grow in scope and importance. Any contributions to the collections will help fill in historical gaps, assuring that we have a past, a history, and a future.
