The Quebec Gay Archives (French: Archives gaies du Québec) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to documenting the history of the gay and lesbian communities of the Canadian province of Quebec.[1] Founded in 1983 by Jacques Prince and Ross Higgins and located in Montreal,[2] the QGA maintains collections of periodicals, newspapers, press clippings, book, videocassettes, DVDs, posters, photos and archival materials.[1] Its collection includes the photographic canon of Alan B. Stone, which reflects the life's work of the notable Montreal "beefcake" photographer.[3] In 2013, the Quebec Gay Archives moved to expanded premises on rue Atateken in Montreal.
