Recorded in 2019, this independent project highlights stories of LGBTQ+ individuals over the age of 60 who have lived in the Bay Area for 20+ years. Recordings were made at the Oakland LGBTQ Community Center, the Pacific Center, Berkeley High School and in peoples’ homes. Excerpts here offer a taste of the rich experiences of LGBTQ+ elders and add their narratives to a larger landscape of East Bay stories. Explore the map for additional stories.
