Documenting and preserving minority cultures is an ongoing challenge for libraries and archives as most of this cultural production continues to exist beyond the mainstream. Such is the case for sexual minorities in progressive societies like those of France, Italy and Spain. The various voices from a panel (an independent researcher, a literary scholar, an academic librarian, and an activist-publisher) provide a learning opportunity not only to assess voids in our collections but also offer novel strategies for addressing such gaps.
