Here Laing appears in a photo booth wearing a head scarf in undated images. Dallas Denny, a writer, editor, publisher, community organizer, and powerful advocate for transgender equality, helped bring Laing’s personal collection of images to the attention of Rawson and the arhive. Denny tells The Advocate:
“Her collected records and materials document not only her personal involvement, but the history of the organizations with which she was affiliated. I should note that Dottie, Alison's late wife, played an important role in Alison's transgender activism. She served a term as Director of Fantasia Fair and attended many events. Alison is no longer able to house her voluminous history, and last fall, with her permission, her daughters delivered a dozen or more boxes of papers, photographs, letters, recordings, books, newsletters, and program books to my house."
