The Lesbian Herstory Archives (LHA) is home to the world's largest collection of materials by and about lesbians and their communities. “LHA Herstories: Audio/Visual Collections” contains digitized copies of some of the 3,000 oral history cassettes in the Archives' Spoken Word Collection and 950 videotapes in the Video Collection.
The oral histories and other recordings on this site bring to life the rich stories of some of the lesbians for whom we have audio cassettes and VHS tapes in our collection. Some materials were contributed as part of personal collections; others were interviews done by members of the Archives or our communities. Some were part of research projects and others were recorded at public events by individuals who donated them to the Archives. These oral histories represent only a small part of the material in our collection.
