These documents provide an important record of community activity within and beyond the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer communities in Victoria in the period 2005-2006. They show a breadth of activities, including tours, exhibitions, research projects and political movements, across organisations ranging from Museum Victoria, Swinburne University, Melbourne Justice Museum and the City of Melbourne, to the Australian Lesbian and Gay Archives, the New Wave Christian Fellowship Church and the ALSO Foundation.
Museum Victoria is developing a collection to improve its representation of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer communities in Victoria. The report 'Lesbian, Bisexual, Gay, Transgender Material Survey: Project Report 2006' (Kate Davison) identified a clear need for further collections in this area. The collection is being developed in the context of Museum Victoria's Strategic Plan 2008-2013, Corporate Plan 2008-2013 and Research Policy 2008, all of which emphasize the importance of cultural diversity across the Museum's programs.
