OUTWORDS records, preserves, and shares the stories of LGBTQIA2S+* elders, to build community and catalyze social change. Since our founding in 2016, we've collected nearly 250 in-person and virtual interviews in 35 states. OUTWORDS is the only national project focusing exclusively on capturing the stories of queer elders. We prioritize inclusion, diversity, and equity in our interviewee selection. And we can't do this work without you.
Each of our interviews costs about $3600 to research, record, transcribe, preserve, and upload to our free digital library. Please contribute as generously as you can today. Please consider making a recurring monthly donation. Recurring donations sustain us and set us up for long-term stability and growth.
Thank you in advance for your vision, your support, and your generosity.
* Lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and questioning, intersex, asexual and ally, and two-spirit. At OUTWORDS, we proudly embrace this ever-expanding acronym. We also respectfully use the shorter terms LGBTQ+ and 'queer' to refer to our entire community.
