Episode Description

The events and changes that have occurred over the past half-century for LGBTQ people are nothing short of remarkable. At the same time, our stories are at risk of being lost; our pioneers and elders are passing away at an alarming rate. Now is the time for OUTWORDS: a national archive of in-depth, on-camera interviews with both well known and ‘regular’ LGBTQ Americans — each person providing the unique, personal story of what he or she has witnessed and experienced, over decades of extraordinary challenge and change for America’s LGBTQ community. By recording and appreciating our journey, we can help guarantee that the lessons of our past are not lost to future generations.
