Past Winners of the Spotlight on Archives Grant

In 2018, the Spotlight Grant winner was Georgia State University Special Collections. GSU used the funds to hold an event, "Mags, Bars, and (Drag) Stars: A History of Atlanta's Gay Bars and Community Magazines," that highlighted their Gender & Sexuality Collections.
