Inspired by the amazing work of the XFR Collective, Rebecca Fraimow and I recently started a new archival initiative called XFR Boston
, which is working to preserve and uplift underrepresented, marginalized and community-based histories that are found on obsolete and endangered audiovisual formats. Our first event is a Queer History Video Digitization Pop-up
happening later this month at a local community archive called The History Project: Documenting LGBTQ Boston
. If you happen to know anyone with old videos that somehow document the queer history of Boston, please send them our way and help us spread the word about this new project! Thanks all!
