Rachel Spigel hosts a show dedicated to the topics of gender identity and expression. The episode features excerpts from interviews with J. Dionne, Lisa Bunker, Frank Brooks, and Kelly Arbor.
Querying the Past was a 6-week special series that aired on Thursday evenings 7-7:30pm. The first episode began on Thursday June 14th in honor of Pride Portland Week. This series comes from the LGBTQ Maine Oral History Project that collected and preserved the voices and stories of members of the Southern Maine LGBTQ community. The Principal Investigator for this project was Dr. Wendy Chapkis, Professor of Sociology and Women & Gender Studies at the University of Southern Maine. From 2016-18, Professor Chapkis was also the Faculty Scholar for the Sampson Center’s LGBTQ+ Collection. The LGBTQ Maine Oral History Project integrated USM students into the process of community-based research; after being trained each fall, students served as interviewers and transcribers of the oral histories.
