LGBT Veterans' Stories Wanted
by the BROOKLYN PUBLIC LIBRARY
for the Veterans History Project

The Brooklyn Public Library (BPL), in partnership with the Library of Congress and with the ongoing support of the Charles H. Revson Foundation, is launching its new Veterans Oral History Project and needs your help.  Their goal is to record the stories of military veterans who served during American wars and make them available for current and future generations of family members, researchers, and the general public. Recorded stories will be kept in the Brooklyn Collection audio archive and featured on the BPL website. Interviews will also be sent to the American Folklife Center in Washington DC, where they will be added to the Library of Congress’ Veterans History Project.  In the interest of capturing a broad range of stories, the BPL is reaching out to LGBT Veterans and organizations to chronicle their experiences in military life and in combat.   If you are interested in sharing your story, please contact the BPL Outreach Services department at (718) 230-2745 or email to Robby Weinstein, the archivist who will lead these efforts at r.weinstein@brooklynpubliclibrary.org.
