The Lesbian Testimony Podcast - Episode 18

The Lesbian Testimony Podcast - Episode 18

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.

“We want to archive and collect stories on our own terms. A big part of documenting the history is documenting the history for us, by us. And that’s the big seed of everything, everything starts from the story. Everything starts from these interviews and relationships with these elders and the intergenerational connections.” - Indee Mitchell

For episode 18 we talked to Bonnie Gabel and Indee Mitchell about their project Last Call: New Orleans Dyke Bar History Project. This project creates a digital archive of queer oral history, hosts a podcast series and tutorials and puts on live performances and events in service of these projects.
