Introducing Country Queers

When Rae Garringer set out to gather rural and small town LGBTQIA+ histories in 2013, they had no formal training in oral history or audio recording. They were motivated by a deep frustration that it was so hard to find rural queer stories, and an intense personal need to connect with other rural queers. In this episode you'll learn more about Rae and the history of the ongoing multimedia oral history project: Country Queers.   * * * * * * * * * * * * * * Learn more at www.countryqueers.com   * * * * * * * * * * * * * * Host, Producer, and Lead Editor: Rae Garringer Assistant Editor & Musical Magic: Tommie Anderson Editorial Advisory Dream Team: Hermelinda Cortés, Lewis Raven Wallace, and Sharon P.
