Ananda’s collection includes a zine, a poetry chapbook, journals, and a stage play draft.

They enjoy crafting, restoring and reupholstering furniture, collecting things, reading, going to the movies, and writing. When they applied to this project, Ananda wrote, “Building and preserving lesbian community is something I actively strive for, and I would be overjoyed if I was able to be aPart of a living history. I also have a deep love for archival work, especially of lesbian existence! My blackness and my sexuality have always felt intertwined but recently I’ve been thinking about my mental health and socioeconomic status and how it relates to my identity/perceived identity as well. This seems like the perfect project to continue to explore these thoughts.”
