Oral History Project

Your memories are a critical part of LGBTQ+ history. Our stories about Gay and Lesbian bars of the 50s and 60s, the impact of AIDS in Central New York, 21st century victories and how they've affected us, coming out, enduring friendships -- these are all a part of local LGBTQ history. Would you like to add yours? Gary Fitzgerald (pictured above) and Will Doswell are creating an archive of Zoom video interviews which will be preserved and available on the SAGE Upstate website. Each video (15-20 minutes) is moderated by Gary --the topic is up to you. A zoom meeting before each interview helps to establish a format for your particular story. 

Interested? Contact Gary at ; Will  for more details. Will Doswell - wdoswell@aol.comGary Fitzgerald-  or call SAGE at 315-478-1923.

At SAGE Upstate, we are creating a new program called IDENTITY. Tim Lattimore (pictured above), the SAGE Upstate Ambassador to LGBTQIA+ BIPOC (Black, Indigenous and People of Color) communities, is planning activities where LGBTQIA+BIPOC can gather in safe and affirming space. He is now is reaching out for input on programs -- community discussions, social gatherings, and other activities that people might express. Tim says, "IDENTITY  symbolizes the idea of being able to be yourself and speak your mind without judgment, ridicule, or fear. The program  is a safe space that YOU get to create."  For more info or to share ideas, contact Tim at, or leave a message with Leslie (315-478-1923).
