Local LGBTQ History Archived in the Digital Commons

The CSUMB Library has recently acquired archival material related to the history of the LGBTQ community in Monterey County and is in the process of making it available to the public. Digitized materials, including issues of the Demeter feminist newspaper from the 1970s and 1980s, are available in the Digital Commons.
