The UA Pride Alliance was first formed in 1970 to foster a feeling of community on campus for LGBTQ students. The original name for this group was the Gay Liberation Front. The title of this group, as well as the level of inclusion has developed over the years. Other names used were the Gay Alliance in 1974, the Gay and Lesbian Alliance in 1984 and the Lesbian, Gay, and Bisexual Alliance in 1992. The current name was introduced in 2000 based on the records in the collections. This group in its current iteration has helped to make Albany an inclusive campus and works with the Gender and Sexuality Resource Center based in the campus center. The Pride Alliance also works with the Middle Earth Peer Assistance Program for many of their programs.
This collection consists of materials related to events hosted by or affiliated with the various iterations of the University at Albany Pride Alliance.
