CALL FOR PAPERS
The Red River Rainbow Seniors (Fargo) oral history project, "Breaking Barriers: Harvesting LGBTQ Stories from the Northern Plains" has interviewed over 50 people, most of whom are over 55 years old.

In the transcriptions, we are currently redacting the names people who have been interviewed and who do not want their interviews released without their permission. That's just over 10% of our interviews.
