About the Event

The CCQAP is a collaborative, community-based effort tasked with documenting the history of queer and trans lives on the California Central Coast. Our project values the specificity of individual lives, and so we mean the terms “queer and trans” to encompass not only the recognized range of historically marginalized LGBTQ+ identities but also the lives of those that do not readily fit into intelligible categories of gender or sexuality.

When not simply overlooked or ignored, such lives have been actively excluded from the official records archived in institutions of public memory.  However, much of the historical information pertaining to queer and trans lives does survive in the memories of people. For that reason, the CCQAP aims to recover and to preserve those first-hand accounts through recorded interviews and the collection of relevant supplementary materials.

This forum will provide an introduction by and of members of the CCQAP, including a brief history of its founding and mission, examples of their archiving work including clips from Lisa Dean, Kelly Quiros, and Carroll Leslie, and a discussion/open Q&A.  We encourage LGBTQ seniors to especially join us who wish to share their stories or be considered as potential interviewees, or provide historical anecdotes.
