Sexual Minorities Archives Seeks Summer Interns (Northampton, MA)

The Sexual Minorities Archives is a grassroots, multimedia TLGBIQ collection founded in Chicago, Illinois in 1974 and relocated to Northampton, Massachusetts in 1979. Our non-profit organization, the Sexual Minorities Educational Foundation, Inc., was created in 2011 to expand the work of the Sexual Minorities Archives. We are dedicated to collecting, preserving, protecting, and making accessible the literature, history, and art of all sexual minorities of all races and ethnicities, including: transsexuals, transgender persons, lesbians, gays, bisexuals, intersex persons, queers, gender-queers, cross-dressers, BDSM/leather folk, asexuals, polyamorists, celibates, and other emerging sexual minority groups. We seek to inform, educate, and inspire the TLGBIQ community and our allies to understand our unique stories, and individual and collective experiences.

The Sexual Minorities Archives is searching for student interns for the Summer of 2014. Responsibilities of student interns can include expanding our social media presence, sorting and processing subject file materials, producing finding aids for collections, cataloging books and multimedia, and conducting local history research.

No prior experience is necessary for this internship. Student interns should be interested in archival work and preserving queer history. The Sexual Minorities Archives encourages students of all backgrounds to apply.

This internship is unpaid; however, students may seek funding through their institution if possible. Start date and schedule are flexible and can be coordinated to meet the student’s needs. Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis, and multiple positions may be available.
