The Joss Greene Papers include fliers, programs, awards, photos, speeches, student publications, artifacts, class syllabi, personal drawings, notes, and materials related to queer and trans education and advocacy from his undergraduate time at Scripps (2008-2011). Also, included are programming from on-campus allyship workshops attended and facilitated by Greene. As a transgender man attending Scripps College in the early 2010s, Greene’s papers record a LGBTQIA+ history of Scripps and the Claremont Colleges, centered on campus activism and education. The collection highlights a greater political movement for queer and trans liberation, with material related to the protest against CA Prop 8 (a 2008 California constitutional amendment to ban marriage equality), a petition to include a Queer Studies major at Scripps College, and art advocating for gender-neutral bathrooms on campus.
