    Scope and Content of Collection

    The bulk of the collection concerns the activities of the International Lesbian and Gay Association (ILGA), a worldwide federation of national and local groups dedicated to achieving lesbian and gay rights around the globe. Founded in 1978, ILGA focuses public and government attention on lesbian and gay rights by supporting programs and protest actions, asserting diplomatic pressure, providing resource information, and working with the international media. The collection contains selected ILGA materials collected by Del Valle, including ILGA campaigns, activities, resources, conference materials, and affiliate group information. Also included are [Gay and Lesbian] Center Liaison Committee (New York) meeting minutes from January to December 1991, when Del Valle was presumably secretary. A smaller part of the collection contains Lambda Legal Defense and Education Fund news releases from September 1990 to July 1993; during at least part of this time, Del Valle served as Assistant to the Executive Director of Lambda. A still smaller portion of the collection contains photographs from three east coast events. Researchers can also consult the ILGA Bulletin, which is available in the Periodical Collection.
