GALA and you.

Visit

The Gala Offices are open to the public during week days from 8:30 – 4:00,
excluding public holidays.
Our small library is a communal space that is generally
occupied by researches using the archive, students and other walk-ins needing a
quite place to study and the Gala YOUth Forum on Thursday evenings.
o The archival material can only be accessed by appointment, thus, if you are
interested in viewing archival material, please have a look at the guide to get a

sense of what you would be interested in seeing and contact the archivist to set up
an appointment.

Volunteer

Gala operates on a small staff and has limited capacity. If you have any skills or time
to offer to Gala, please feel free to set up a meeting with one of us.

Donate

The Gala Archive is a living archive. This means that we never stop collecting. Gala
has an ongoing collections policy that covers queer African history, as well as
contemporary news and events.
Do you have documents, posters, flyers,
photographs, t-shirts or other items you would like to donate? Do you want your
story, or that of your organisation, recorded and/or preserved? Your stories and
contributions are important. Help us document the present in order to preserve the
past.
Your contribution matters.

Please contact our archivist,
Linda Chernis: linda.chernis@wits.ac.za
