The LGBTQ oral history collection consists of seventeen interviews of students, staff, and faculty mainly conducted during Pride Month in April 2018 and April 2019 at the University of Maryland for the event “Speak Your Truth: The LGBTQ Oral History Project". Participants reflect upon and share their experiences of being LGBTQ+ on the University of Maryland campus or in the community. The project was a cooperative effort between former staff member Ashleigh Coren, Special Collections Librarian for Teaching and Learning, and the LGBT Equity Center. The collection is comprised of transcripts and audio recordings of these oral histories. Some interviewees are anonymous.
This collection is open to the public. Some individuals have chosen to remain anonymous.
