Each lesbian born in the early decades of the 20th century lived through a period of time when non-heterosexual life styles were mostly unknown to society. Their life experiences need to be recorded so that the struggles they experienced and the courage they exemplified will not be lost to coming generations.
Women's lives for this oral herstory project are needed. It is only through networking with lesbians around the country that the project will find those individuals whose significant life stories need to be recorded.
Arden Eversmeyer is a lesbian activist who lives and works in Houston, TX. She has developed this project to interview, record, and transcribe the life stories of lesbians over the age of 70. There are now more than 65 old lesbian herstories in the collection.
Arden, or one of the interviewers working on the project, will come to the home of anyone who is willing to have her life story recorded. The recorded and transcribed herstories will be archived so that, in the future, they will be available to interested herstorians, students, and researchers.
