North Country Prism

North Country Prism is a Canton-based organization advocating for the lesbian/gay/bisexual/transgender community in Northern New York.  The organization formed in the early 1990s and produces a monthly newsletter, Prism.  The group’s website describes North Country Prism as a member organization for LGBT people that meets monthly and provides community members with a place to meet, communicate and promote self-identity and awareness.  It notes that meetings of the group are confidential.

This collection consists primarily of files of source material for articles written for the Prism newsletter between 1992 and 1998.   Also included are a few meeting minutes, membership records, mailing lists and other such administrative materials.  The collection also includes a sampling of other LGBT-oriented publications, from the 1990s, mostly originating from New York and the northeastern states.
