Our first oral histories are now available on the Lowcountry Digital Library! You can read the transcripts and listen to the recordings from our collection page.
We’ve just posted a new article by Harlan Greene about the Garden & Gun club, a mixed gay and straight bar in Charleston in the late 1970s and early 1980s. Click here to read the article.
We now have a LibGuide to supplement our collections with the College of Charleston! You can find books, web resources, articles, and videos to add context and depth to the archival materials and oral histories that are part of the project. Visit https://libguides.library.cofc.edu/lgbtq to explore the guide and find resources to help further your research.
