Oral Histories with People of Color

The Oral Histories with People of Color collection highlights diverse stories told throughout the many oral history collections found on the DTA. Every person in this collection has self-identified as a member of a racial or ethnic minority group. We understand that these stories have been underrepresented in trans history and hope to call particular attention to the intersection of trans experiences with racial and ethnic identities here.
