Every year, the University of Victoria’s Transgender Archives attract visitors from all over the world looking to study and learn from its history. The archives are the largest of their kind and one of the few trans-specific archives anywhere in the world. Housed in UVic’s McPherson Library, the archives consist of materials from 23 different countries in 15 languages, including organizational records, audio histories, community-based newsletters, personal papers, photos and original art works that trace the history of transgender people dating back to the 19th century.
