About the Bj Bud memorial Archives, in the Arizona Collection:
This collection contains organization records, subject files, photographs, periodicals and artifacts that document Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) history in Arizona. In addition, there is a small collection of material from various locations in the United States, Canada and England. LGBT history is under-documented in Arizona archives and libraries. As a result, Phoenix Pride, Marshall Shore (Hip Historian) and ASU Libraries formed the Arizona LGBT History Project, an initiative to preserve archival material.
