Description
The records of FTM International document the organizational history and cultural, social and political and work of the largest, continuously-running organization serving the Female-to-Male community.

The records include materials related to the board of directors, conferences, publication of the newsletter and social events, art, artifacts, by-laws, correspondence, financial records, photographs and posters.
Background
FTM International (FTM) is the largest and oldest continuously running organization serving the Female-to-Male community and their allies. It is a peer-support group whose mission is to improve the quality of life and promote visibility and equality for female-to-male transpeople and their families. FTM International also campaigns to end shame and fear surrounding trans issues and to end economic marginalization of transpeople. To this end, the organization offers information, networking opportunities and advocacy to, and on behalf of, the trans-community. FTM International also provides educational services on transgender issues to the general public.
