Finding Aid

Publication Date



This collection is composed of the twelve interviews conducted by Carrie Kline as part of her Rockefeller Fellowship with the Center for the Study of Ethnicity and Gender in Appalachia on “Appalachian Resiliency in Sexual Minorities.” All interviews have been anonymized, but basic information about the individuals has been retained. Interviewees were southern West Virginians who identified as being gay, lesbian, or transgender and spanned in age from their 20s to their 70s. Materials in the collection use terminology that is now considered outdated and terms used have been updated for inclusion in this finding aid.


Special collections material is obtained from many sources and is intended primarily for research and educational purposes.
