This archive is possibly the largest collection of digitized audio materials about Lesbians and Lesbian communities, featuring notable Lesbian artists and activists, including Mabel Hampton, Audre Lorde, and Adrienne Rich. It also features the women of Buffalo, New York, who were interview subjects for the now seminal work of LGBT studies, Elizabeth Kennedy and Madeline Davis’ Boots of Leather, Slippers of Gold: The History of a Lesbian Community. This archive provides an oral account of 20th Century LGBT life, particularly the 1920s through the 1990s, a time in which being gay was rife with conflict.
