Transgender Oral History Project

or
Transgender Oral History Project
The Transgender Oral History Project is a community-driven effort to collect and share a diverse range of stories from within the transgender and gender variant communities. We accomplish this by promoting grassroots media projects, documenting trans people’s experiences, maintaining a publicly accessible digital archive, and teaching media production skills. The TOHP had almost 300 print materials that are now available on the DTA and the Internet Archive. These materials have since been donated to the University of Minnesota's Jean-Nickolaus Tretter Collection in Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, and Transgender Studies (https://www.lib.umn.edu/tretter). The TOHP has shifted focus to a new project called "America in Transition," a documentary series and community engagement campaign that explores community, family, and social issues for trans people of color across the United States.
