The Florida State University Pride Student Union Records document the founding and development of Pride including its predecessor and auxiliary organizations. The collection contains administrative records, promotional materials, artwork, banners, newspapers, and journal and magazine clippings produced and collected by the organization since the late 1960s. The Pride Student Union is a student agency overseen by the FSU Student Government Association (SGA), and provides services and programs that address the needs of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, questioning, asexual and intersex students. The organization was founded in 1969 as a political community group called the People's Coalition for Gay Rights, and went through five iterations before establishing itself as part of the SGA. There are also several auxiliary student groups and community organizations that grew out of the Pride Student Union, including the FSU Student Counseling Center, The Family Tree Community Center, and Seminole Allies & Safe Zones. The collection provides access to the voices of the LGBTQ+ community in Tallahassee, the State of Florida, as well as the surrounding Gulf States from the past fifty years.

The digital collection is only selections from the physical collection. For more information about the collection and its contents, see the collection's finding aid.
