Joel M. Starky Library


Joel M. Starkey was one of the pioneer gay activists in South Florida; he was the founder of The Southern Gay Archives (which later merged with Fort Lauderdale’s Stonewall Library) and published The Southern Gay Liberator during the 1970’s.

With the help of a generous donation by Joel Starkey from his personal book collection, Compass expanded its’ library to over two thousand books.
