The Trans-Gender Archive (TGA) was founded in January 1986 by Richard Ekins at the University of Ulster, UK. It was the first such collection in the world to be housed within a University setting. In 1986, the term ‘trans-gender’ was barely in use. The TGA became ‘The Transgender Archive’ in 2000, in recognition of the widespread use of the term ‘transgender’ by that time. The Archive ceased its connection with the University of Ulster in July 2010, by which time Richard Ekins had become Emeritus Professor of Sociology and Cultural Studies at the University. This extensive collection includes transgender books, magazines, newspaper clippings, scholarly papers, audio tapes, video tapes, films, photographs, artifacts, ephemera, biographical and autobiographical writings, and miscellaneous papers. It was acquired by the University of Victoria, Vancouver Island, Canada in 2013.
