On Thursday, June 11, the microfilm copies for the Gay Alliance, and the digitized copies for the University of Rochester, the Gay Alliance and Cornell University were picked up from HOV Services, the vendor who did the conversion. The entire process began mid-March and was completed by June 1st.
Shoulders To Stand On will now have on one CD the record of all the shoulders that have brought the Rochester LGBT Community into the 21st century. The University of Rochester and the Gay Alliance will spend the next several months working out an agreement for offering the digitized version to the public, along with ongoing digitization of future issues, and the legalities inherent in such an agreement.
The Gay Alliance and the University of Rochester will celebrate this accomplishment at the Gay Alliance Annual Meeting to be held on June 30, 2010 at 6 pm in the GAGV Youth Center at the Auditorium Theater. Come and see the early issues and how the Empty Closet has grown and changed.
Shoulders to Stand On is proud to have been a part of this endeavor, and is proud of all of those who contributed to making this happen. See you at the Annual Meeting to CELEBRATE!!!
