ABOUT THE LEGENDS ARCHIVE
The Legends Archive was created to recognize those people of our own era that we feel have shaped the LGBTQ+ community that we live in. The Legends of the past like Sylvester, Harvey Milk, and Divine have paved the way for us, and now it is time to hold up the Legends that we continue to create in this dynamic epicenter that is San Francisco.
Each year, The Academy selects one individual who has truly become a Legend, worthy of being remembered in the historical archive. They are invited to donate a personal artifact to represent themselves and their contribution to the community to be put on permanent display.
