The Lesbian Testimony Podcast - Episode 9

The Lesbian Testimony Podcast - Episode 9

The Lesbian Testimony Podcast is a project born out of the Archives of Lesbian Oral Testimony to encourage greater engagement with lesbian oral records. Each week host Callie Hitchcock will talk to a donor of the archive about one of their submissions or talk to an oral historian involved in lesbian oral testimony.

“Coming from a time when women were still associated with the private sphere, those relationships would be felt as very private, but with the lesbian feminist generation, being very visible and saying this is my identity and creating community around that identity, moving from the private to the public sphere, it really changed how people felt about sexuality." - Nadine Boulay

For episode 9 we spoke to Nadine Boulay about her interview with Christine and Robin, seminal figures in Vancouver queer activism in the 70’s and 80’s, family politics in the queer experience, and how the concept of sexuality has shifted over time.
