Lesbian Herstory Archives Oral History Project

The Lesbian Elders Oral Herstory Project,  at the Lesbian Herstory Archives!

Supported by a two-year Mellon-funded Community Archives grant, LHA is creating The Lesbian Elders Oral Herstory Projectwhich seeks to continue the Archives’ commitment to collecting and sharing Lesbian stories. These oral histories of Lesbian Elders will offer experiential insight into the history of Lesbian culture and activism, complementing LHA’s already rich collections. In addition to sharing a life history, for a unifying theme we are seeking volunteers with a connection to  LHA.

If you would like to volunteer to participate, either as an interviewee that would like to share their story or as an interviewer, please visit this link or www.lesbianeldersoralherstoryproject.com for more information on the project. We look forward to hearing from you! Don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions at lesbianeldersoralherstory@gmail.com.
