Cornell University Library’s Human Sexuality Collection — which consists of human sexuality documents that Cornell gathered over the past 25 years — was displayed in Kroch Library’s Hirshland Gallery on Valentine’s Day and will remain open until National Coming Out Day, Oct. 11.

The exhibit features pictures of transsexuals and transvestites from the early twentieth century, fingerprints from an AIDS activist who was arrested for civil disobedience and many other books, letters and artifacts, according to Brenda Marston, curator of the collection.
