Abstract or Summary
  • Traditional archives have excluded marginalized people (women, people of color, and LGBTQ+ people) from sharing their histories through socially just representations. Portrayals of oppressed people that do exist in traditional archives are from the lens of the white cis-heteronormative patriarchy, and justify a narrative of colonialism, oppression, and injustice. This thesis project examines the need for archives that specifically strive to collect and share the stories of LGBTQ+ people while remaining accessible and accountable to the community that they are serving. This paper contextualizes the need for a Queer Archive on the Oregon State University Campus, and demonstrates what a radical archive activism looks like through the creation of a film. The film is a combination of existing LGBTQ+ records at SCARC, additional documentation collection over the past year, and interviews, intertwined to portray the narratives of these individuals within the broader context of three LGBTQ organizations at OSU. This thesis also provides recommendations for future intiatives of the OSU Queer Archives as the archives move forward with activist archival work in the coming years.
