We welcome participation in the oral history as an interviewer/ee or volunteer. 

We would be happy to facilitate an oral history training specific to your community organization. Anyone who self-identifies as trans / gender non conforming and with New York City (as a current, former, or sometimes resident) is welcome to contribute an interview.


We can loan you recording equipment and help you secure space at an NYPL branch. For more information and guidelines please review:
