The Transgender Archives' online discovery tool searches the world’s largest collection of Trans, nonbinary, Two-Spirit, and other gender-diverse publications! 

The Transgender Archives at the University of Victoria is the largest trans archives in the world. Our collections comprise of nearly 400 periodical titles. Each unique issue contains valuable information such as articles written by trailblazing community members, and important historical events that shaped trans history and activism.

In 2016, we identified a representative selection of our periodical titles and began a multi-year project of reviewing each page and tracking historically valuable details, such as people, places, dates, titles, and subject keywords. This database represents approximately 20% of our entire periodical collection, with more materials being added all the time.
