Since the Gay Student Union was established in 1983, a visible and active community at the University of Alabama has been steadily evolving, its narrative inscribed in the very names the student organization has taken up over the years, seven in all. Each reinvention signaled how the family was expanding.

This exhibit, a mix of originals and facsimiles, is drawn from the Miller-Stephens GLBTQ UA Student Organization Collection, held by the W. S. Hoole Special Collections Library at The University of Alabama. It provides just a sampling of what’s available in this research collection, which comprises the group’s records and artifacts, as well as ephemera documenting more than thirty years of Southern LGBTQ+ history.
