Scope and Content of Collection

This small collection contains administrative records, correspondence, flyers, mass mailings, newsletters, meeting minutes, photographs of activities and members, and audiotapes from the Gay Buddhist Fellowship (GBF). The GBF started in the early 1990s, and these materials span the first decade of the group’s existence. Early on, the group was called the Gay Buddhist Fraternity. Audiotapes include lectures and Dharma talks by Robin Courtin, Roger Corless, Howie Cohn, Robert Ennis, Erik Kolvig (”Gay Sexuality and the Dharma”), Norman Fisher, Myo Lahey and Amy Miller, and the First GBF Relationships Forum.
