Abstract: The Pauline Park Papers contains material from 1986-2015 documenting the advocacy, activism, and writing of Pauline Park, a transgender activist, speaker, writer, and educator. A large portion of the collection contains material from the New York Association for Gender Rights Advocacy (NYAGRA) and Queens Pride House (QPH) two organizations that Park helped co-found, in 1998 and 1997, respectively, and lead. Park campaigned for the transgender rights law enacted by the New York City Council in 2002, and in 2005 became the first openly transgender grand marshal of the New York City Pride March. Park has been the keynote speaker at many LGBT and Asian American conferences and events held in the United States. She has written extensively about arts and culture, music, spirituality, politics, theatre, race, and LGBT health and rights. Her writing has been published in journals, newspapers, and newsletters. This collection contains materials on subjects such as transgender health, identity, community, and public policy, and includes correspondence, board meeting minutes, photographs, VHS tapes, conference name badges, certificates, audio recordings, original poetry and creative writing, notes, speeches, flyers and programs for events and conferences related to QPH and NYAGRA, press featuring Park, and letters to politicians and allied organizations advocating the passage of LGTBQ inclusion and non-discrimination legislation.
