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.
For episode 6 we spoke to Valerie Korinek about her chapter in the upcoming 2018 anthology Beyond Women's Words. We discuss her chapter titled “Locating Lesbians, Finding ‘Gay Women,’ Writing Queer Histories: Reflections on Oral Histories, Identity, and Community Memory” and the issues of naming and identification in the queer community when trying to conduct oral history research.
