In recent unviersity news, the Fales Library & Special Collection announced that they would be streaming over 600 videos from the Gay Cable network.
Video can be found in the Fales Guide to the Gay Cable Network Archives, 1982-2001 finding aid.
Marvin Taylor, Director of Fales Library & Special Collections, had this to say:
I’m happy to announce that over 600 videos from the Gay Cable Network, the longest running LGBTQ cable network, are now streaming via a finding aid from the Fales Library web page.
This collection is the most important documentation of LGBTQ activism, culture, entertainment, and history in existence. GCN operated from from 1982-2001. Especially important is their coverage of the AIDS pandemic. They were the first news show to talk about the disease.
I’d like to thanks Brent Phillips, Carol Kassel and all the other Fales and DLTS staff who helped make this material available.
