Our history was disappearing as quickly as we were making it. With that realisation, Deborah Edel and Joan Nestle co-founded the Lesbian Herstory Archives, the worlds largest collection of materials by and about lesbians. Through many of the major milestones in LGBTQ+ history, the all-volunteer organization has literally rescued history from the trash, but even after more than 40 years of work, and with the co-founders in their mid-70s, the group still faces fresh challenges. The Archivettes is a documentary film that explores how this group came together to combat lesbian invisibility and create a place that says yes.
