The New York Public Library's Community Oral History Project teamed up with the NYC Trans Oral History Project to collect, preserve, and share oral histories from the transgender and gender non-conforming communities. This archive documents transgender resistance and resilience in New York City. These narratives are collected to confront the erasure of trans lives and to record diverse histories of gender as intersecting with race and racism, poverty, dis/ability, aging, housing migration, sexism, and the AIDS crisis. On this site you can listen to interviews, search interviews tags (like #genderfluidity #self-knowledge #gentrification and #queerfamily), and (soon) read transcripts.
Content warning: Many of the interviews here include personal accounts of violence, sexual assault, abuse as children, or trauma.
