Libraries are about freedom. Freedom to read, freedom of ideas, freedom of communication. They are about education, about entertainment, about making safe spaces, and about access to information.
A library is a place of safety, a haven from the world.
Marsha P. Johnson is a pioneer of the LGBTQIA+ rights activist movements, but she wasn't the only person to rise to the call of action when it was needed the most. The riots at Stonewall were the catalyst for expansive amounts of change and inspiring the collective fight against oppression. We chose her smiling face to be the icon for Legacy because even though she is not the only person to make a difference on that night, her spirit stands for the acknowledgment that what we leave behind is often times bigger than ourselves, and further, that our actions have an impact that extends beyond what we can imagine.
Kink & LGBTQIA+ Library
With massive space and countless shelves, we will feature an expansive kink & LGBTQIA+ focused library both to preserve and pass on knowledge.
Contribute Your Legacy
Become part of the library and legacy by contributing something of your own to our collection.
what came before us?
Our expansive library will feature books, media, and artifacts from a range of authors, artists, and icons who are BIPOC, AAPI, LGBTQIA+, disabled, neurodivergent, and more. We believe that representation paves the way to equity, access, and a sense of belonging among community with people who understand your personal intersections.
what do you want to leave behind?
We want your history to be a part of our library and artifacts. Preserving our current history is just as important as understanding the history of the past. Leaving a part of yourself with us will help preserve your legacy and display its importance among others who share similar histories. In addition to our countless shelves for books, we will designate a space exclusively for run pins, club/run patches, and other memorabilia awaiting your contributions.
How do you want to connect with the ancestors?
Connect with your past in order to understand your future by engaging in expansive literature study, touching artifacts to feel our ancestors' energy, and spending time with folks who are our elders. We believe that our rich history is enriched by the connection we have with our ancestors, bringing the past into the future and creating something entirely new that suits our needs rather than the needs of those in our past.
