From the Los Angeles Times:
The ONE [National Gay and Lesbian] Archives is believed to be the world’s largest collection of LGBT artifacts, including personal items from photo albums and letters to diaries.
While the LGBT rights movement has made tremendous strides in recent years, gay history is little known because it was kept out of the history books for so long, said Joseph Hawkins, director of the archive.
ONE archivists are working with the Los Angeles Unified School District and the Los Angeles LGBT Center to develop LGBT-inclusive history lessons that will be incorporated into the curriculum in the coming months to comply with the FAIR Education Act, a state law passed in 2011.
