The Mark Weber Collection on Lambda Horizon
The Mark A. Weber Collection on Lambda Horizon includes minutes, correspondence, constitution, handouts, notes, and newspaper and magazine articles concerning the Virginia Tech gay and lesbian student organization, Lambda Horizon, from 1971-1991. The collection includes materials regarding the AIDS education committee, which was a primary focus of Lambda Horizon.
Established in 1985 as Lambda Horizon, the LGBTA has undergone many transformations. The early goals of the organization included providing a place on campus for members of the university community to meet without judgement, to help education the campus community, and to create a positive image of people, regardless of orientation.
During the early 1990's the organization changed its name to LGBT and later to LGBTA. Most recently, they have changed their name to HokiePRIDE of Virginia Tech.
