QNotes: LGBTQ archivist, professor Josh Burford sets off for Alabama to record the state’s queer history

QNotes: LGBTQ archivist, professor Josh Burford sets off for Alabama to record the state’s queer history. “[Josh] Burford, who helped create an LGBTQ community archive at the University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa, says he has been ‘itching’ to get back to the state where he was born and raised. ‘I mean, there have been more studies done on Mississippi’s LGBT history than Alabama’s, so it’s this totally untapped resource,’ he observes. ‘I think that potentially people don’t see Alabama as a queer enough place to focus on.’ Burford, as usual, sees potential where others do not.”
