Gale has released the first part of Archives of Human Sexuality and Identity, a milestone digital program that brings together the largest collection of primary source content on gender, sexuality and identity. The archives meet a growing interest for content to support research in these disciplines, and represents the diverse content of the Gale Primary Sources program.

Archives of Human Sexuality and Identity, Part I: LGBTQ History and Culture since 1940 brings together approximately 1.5 million pages of fully-searchable rare and unique content from microfilm, newsletters, organizational papers, government documents, manuscripts, pamphlets and other types of primary sources. Content is sourced from major gay and lesbian organizations worldwide–the Canadian Lesbian and Gay Archives, GLBT Historical Society and others, and covers social, political, health and legal issues impacting LGBTQ communities around the world, including the gay rights movement and the HIV/Aids crisis.

Available for all types of libraries, Archives of Human Sexuality and Identity will support research and instruction in queer history and activism, psychology, sociology, health, political science, policy studies, human rights, gender studies and more. Parts Two and Three are in the planning stages with the product's Advisory Board.
