Oral Histories Reveal Decades Of Closeted LGBT Lives In Nashville

I found an interesting story that chronicles the lives of LGBT people in Nashville prior to the 1970's. It's definitely worth a read or a listen.

  1. I think that this is a really important piece to bring up. It seems that so far in our class, we have pretty much exclusively been discussing the Northeastern U.S. and the West Coast. Obviously, gay lives existed elsewhere; it seems that documentation for those other places is lacking, however. This shows the important work that oral histories can play in the elaboration of these lives, their regional traits, and their unique set of geographies, identities, and languages.
