The mission of the Bay Area Lesbian Archives is to preserve the lesbian history of the Greater San Francisco Bay Area and make it accessible to the public.

Our collections emphasize the lives and activism of courageous everyday lesbians who found ways to live open and authentic lives. These brave pioneers envisioned and created a counterculture, the magnitude of which is unprecedented in women’s history. These stories are a vital addition to the histories of freedom and social justice movements worldwide.
