What to look for on Radio Smart Talk, Friday, August 9, 2013:
The history of the lesbian, gay, bi-sexual, and transgender community is a story that hasn't been told by mainstream society in Central Pennsylvania, according to the LGBT Center of Central PA.
That's why the LGBT History Project is documenting, recording, archiving, and presenting the stories of those who live, have lived, or moved to the region.
The collection will include oral and video histories, photographs, documents, and artifacts. Once completed, it will be archived at Penn State/Harrisburg's Folklore Archive and copies will be available at the LGBT Center and at the Dickinson College Archives in Carlisle.
The project is part of the Central Pennsylvania LGBT Aging Network of the LGBT Center of Central PA.
Appearing on Friday's Radio Smart Talk to discuss the project, its goals, and how the collection will be used are Barry Loveland, the LGBT History Project Committee Chair, Louis Marven, Executive Director of The LGBT Center, and Lonna Malmsheimer, the retired head of the American Studies Department at Dickinson College.
