Oral History Video from LA Gay and Lesbian Center

LA gay-and-lesbian-center-logo1The Los Angeles Gay and Lesbian Community Center has posted a new YouTube video with professionally-edited snippets (and background music) from 10 older lesbians and gay men, available at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JDOdv792rBA

Those interviewed include a lesbian couple who has been together 63 years and at least four other people in their 80s.  The topics they cover include coming out to parents and family members, feeling like “I’m the only one,” Stonewall, caretaking for a dying ex-partner, and how hard it is to come out when you’ve lived “two lives” all your life, complete with different names for each.  It’s well worth a watch.
