StoryCorps Launches New Project To Record LGBT Elders

Dave Isay: “We’ll make a comprehensive effort to find people who were alive in the pre-Stonewall era – in the ’50s and ’60s in small towns all across the country, creating a record of what life was like for them. I think it is going to be very difficult to hear. It’s difficult now; then, it was probably difficult beyond our imagination. You know, it was a spiritual holocaust.”
