Coming Out of the Archives at the Harry Ransom Center
Una Troubridge daybook in Coming Out of the Archives

Coming Out of the Archives is a selection of materials curated by students from Ann Cvetkovich’s spring 2017 Queer Archives class. The materials can be seen in the Ransom Center’s Stories to Tell exhibition that features rotating highlights from the collections.

Housed in two cases alongside Edgar Allan Poe’s desk and José Guadalupe Posada’s broadside prints, the materials focus on the affective and social networks that link those with LGBT and/or queer sensibilities who are present not only in the art world but in the Center’s holdings.
