Cork LGBT Archive
A small, localized digital repository, the Cork LGBT Archive seeks to increase the visibility of LGBT individuals and activists in Cork, Ireland since the 1970s. Orla Egan launched the Cork LGBT Archive in 2015 after Ireland became the first country to legalize same-sex marriage by popular vote. The project started, in part, to highlight Cork as a hub of LGBT activism leading up to the referendum. The archive contains more than 150 digitized items organized into various collections, primarily sourced from award-winning LGBT activist and Cork resident Arthur Leahy's private collection.
