Content DescriptionReturn to Top

This collection consists of artwork, writing, papers and articles donated to be archived as part of the Idaho Queered LGBTQ+ Community Oral History Project of Journalism and Mass Media Professor Denise Bennett. Supported by the National Endowment for the Humanities and other local and national organizations, the project sought to document the proud histories of LGBTQ+ individuals through structured conversations about their experiences in Idaho. The project also produced a digital collection of LGBTQ+ Oral Histories that were recorded during 2017-2018. Featuring interviews with queer Idahoans that detail their experiences with coming out, fighting discrimination, and navigating the particular challenges of their lives, the project aims to help preserve LGBTQ+ history through audio and video storytelling.
