Local Chapter of PFLAG Learns More About the OLGA Archives

Group photo of members of the Springfield MO PFLAG ChapterOn Sunday, July 16, the local chapter of PFLAG met in Special Collections and Archives to learn more about the Ozarks Lesbian and Gay Archives (OLGA). After introductory remarks by Anne Baker, interim head of special collections, guests had the opportunity to look through scrapbooks, oral history transcriptions, newsletters, and other items that show the work being done to preserve local LGBT history.  As part of their visit, the organization donated an award the chapter received in 2013 for the “Someone You Know and Love is Gay” billboard campaign.  Formerly known as Parents, Families and Friends of Lesbians and Gays, PFLAG has over 400 chapters nationwide.
