Trans Activism Oral History Project
The Trans Activism Oral History collection was a project of LGBTQ Oral History Digital Collaboratory. The collection consists of video and audio interviews with 17 leading elder Trans+ activists and allies from across Canada and the US, totalling 43 hours in length.
The Trans Activism Oral History Project has recorded, and preserved for future generations, the stories of activism on behalf of Trans+ people and communities.
The interviews were collected from 2019-2020. The Trans Activism Oral History Project team consisted of: Elspeth Brown (PI), Aaron Devor (Collaborator), Evan Taylor (Interviewer), and Eli Holliday (Project Assistant and Editor). In 2020, the oral histories were donated to the Transgender Archives at the University of Victoria Libraries and to The ArQuives: Canada’s LGBTQ2+ Archives.
Founded by Elspeth Brown in 2014, The LGBTQ Oral History Digital Collaboratory is funded by the Social Science & Humanities Research Council of Canada.
