About the Archives

© 2013 Da Ping Luo


Develop an active, dynamic, inspirational, useful and engaging resource that is: 1) a comprehensive historical record of the Club from its creation to the present day and 2) an archive of important records, documents, and materials (both written and photographic/visual, and as well as spoken material).

We invite you to send your questions and comments to history@frny.org.

Message from Founder Mike McMahon

The History & Archives Project (H&A) was established in 2014, with the encouragement and endorsement of the 2014 FRNY Board, under FRNY President Dave Lin. This sub-site went live (launched) Pride Week 2015. The project has grown and continues to evolve under the support of subsequent Boards including those under Steve Waldon. I wish to acknowledge that this Project was truly a team effort and was made possible only through the hard work of some extremely dedicated volunteers. I wish to take this opportunity to thank each of the team members for his/ her contribution.
