StoryCorps is a national oral history project that helps everyday people record, preserve and share their stories. They have a soundproof recording booth in New York City that provides an intimate setting where pairs can talk and reflect about their lives. You then have the choice to archive your conversation at the Library of Congress.
Most recently, StoryCorps launched the OutLoud initiative, which seeks to honor and preserve stories from the LGBTQ community and amplify the voices of those most often left out of the historical record. We hope to be able to preserve GAPIMNY’s stories as part of this important collection.
We are aiming to schedule a single recording date during the weekend of August or September. There will be 6 recording sessions available during that time. Find a friend or family to have a 40-minute conversational snapshot, and contact Ryan at [email protected] to schedule your appointment.
