The Glasgow Women’s Library is the only accredited institution in the UK that’s dedicated to archiving women’s lives and communities—past and present. The intersectional feminist museum is also home to the Lesbian Archive—the largest collection of artifacts (from political pamphlets and badges to flyers, newsletters, clothes, dildos and more) that’s centered on women and non-binary people’s LGBTQ+ experiences. Adele Patrick tells Dazed, “These are incredibly important materials connected to lesbian lives, they have to be saved.” And while there are moments of separatism in some of the materials (some of which date back to the early 1900s), there’s plenty of intersectionality and inclusivity, too. From the political to the personal, all artifacts in the collection are significant—and they’re there to be shared. Read more at Dazed.
