Barbara Korbal’s main vision for Q Educational Archives project is to leave no voice closeted. Out of the chaos of our past, we move into a future of hope. Collectively, we can preserve and share our past with future generations.

Rebekkah Dreskin

Rebekkah is Q Educational Archives graphic designer, fundraiser and producer of Bands and Archives for the project, and social media coordination.  You can find her at Blame it on Rebekkah Designs.

Special thanks to Terry Kocon of T.K. Graphics for digitizing the articles. And many thanks to Ted and Margaret Kocon for setting up the articles in a chronology!

When the love that dare not speak its name gained a voice, there was an outpouring of words, images, organizations--these are the collections we are preserving.

 We do this work knowing that these materials will be important to artists, filmmakers, educators, scholars, our youth, and those of us who want to take that trip down a sometimes painful, sometimes joyful memory lane.
