SAGE Partners With NPR’s Storycorps

Via press release:

SAGE (Services and Advocacy for GLBT Elders) and the renowned oral history organization, StoryCorps, are proud to announce a new partnership that will help identify stories from LGBT older people around the country for StoryCorps’ “OutLoud” initiative, which is dedicated to recording, preserving, and sharing LGBTQ stories from across America. StoryCorps is an independent nonprofit whose mission is to provide people of all backgrounds and beliefs with the opportunity to record, share, and preserve the stories of our lives. Over the past decade, StoryCorps has collected more than 50,000 interviews, archiving these recordings at the American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress and broadcasting selections on NPR. Over the next year, SAGE and its local affiliates around the country will work with StoryCorps to record stories at their locations in Atlanta, Chicago and San Francisco, as well as through a traveling “MobileBooth” that will visit towns and cities in Alabama, North Carolina, Ohio, Michigan, Missouri, Oklahoma and Texas.

SAGE just completed a daylong taping at their NYC location.
