Digital Transgender Archive Is Now Live

We at the Hormel Center received word today that The Digital Transgender Archive (DTA) has just launched its website!

The purpose of the Digital Transgender Archive (DTA) is to increase the accessibility of transgender history by providing an online hub for digitized historical materials, born-digital materials, and information on archival holdings throughout the world.

Please visit the site and explore the materials that are already online. The DTA has a number of items available via the Internet Archive, which will be incorporated into the site in the coming months. 

Note that this is a preliminary launch and the DTA is just beginning to grow its collections. Please check back often to see what's new! Feel free to contact them with any comments, suggestions, or feedback. You can also follow them on Twitter and Facebook.
