LGBT Stories: A Lesbian Finds Relief and Community In The 1970s

Sandy TR


Guestblogger Nathan Manske and Marquise Lee embarked on a 4 month, 50 state tour of the United States collecting stories for their I'm From Driftwood site. We'll be sharing some of the stories they collected along with some of the insight into what they saw. They're still encouraging people to submit their written stories via IFD.

Driftwood We met Sandy in upstate New York at the SAGE offices. SAGE stands for Services and Advocacy for GLBT Elders, and I was glad to get some stories from folks who were a bit older than most others on IFD. Things are changing so quickly in terms of LGBT acceptance, it's nice to be reminded of what life was like in another time.

  3. Good for her!!! I totally related to being angry at the heterosexual couple making out when she couldn't even hold her lover's hand. TOTALLY get it!!

  4. This deserves to be commented on. SAGE is a great organization, and they really do a lot of great work.
