In honor of the 25th anniversary of the Queens Pride Parade, Queens Memory is partnering with the LaGuardia and Wagner Archives at LaGuardia Community College/CUNY to develop an LGBTQ oral history project. Queens Memory will interview people in their homes, at libraries, and at local LGBTQ community service organizations across the borough. Selections from the first set of these oral histories were featured in The Lavender Line, an exhibit about LGBTQ history in Queens, that ran from June 9 to July 30, 2017, at the Queens Museum.
If you are interested in taking part in this initiative, please see the full description. Queens College students should consider signing up for Prof. Bob Wintermute's Spring 2018 class, "Oral History: Methods and Applications," in which students will participate in the project.
