Southern Arizona Gender Alliance (SAGA) papers

This collection comprises records of the Southern Arizona Gender Alliance related to the 2006 and 2007 Trans Awareness Week in Tucson including details and calendars on events and workshops, participant feedback, and news articles. Organizations like the U of A, Wingspan, and the Southern Arizona Gender Alliance (SAGA) are featured, along with Tucson Pride and publications like Colorez (a Southern Arizona based queer magazine). Erin Russ donated this collection and wrote and editorial on trans voices and inclusion in 2007 that was published in Colorez. This collection is part of the Arizona Queer Archives (AQA), a community-focused archive through the Institute for LGBT Studies at the University of Arizona. It was transferred to Special Collections in 2020.
