Members of the Twin Cities GLBT Oral History Project will discuss their work in Queer Twin Cities on Monday, January 24 at 4:00 p.m. at the University of Minnesota Bookstore in Coffman Memorial Union.

The Twin Cities GLBT Oral History project--a collective organization of students, scholars, and activists devoted to documenting and interpreting the lives of GLBT people, presents a collection of essays on Minnesota's vibrant queer communities, past and present.

Queer Twin Cities is a rich blend of oral history, archival research, and ethnography that uses sexuality to chart connections between people's lives in Minnesota. This collection delivers a critical analysis of local history and community, and fills a glaring omission in the culture and history of Minnesota. Contributors include Kevin P. Murphy, an associate professor of history at the University of Minnesota, and Jennifer L. Pierce, a professor of American studies and the former director of the Center for Advanced Feminist Studies at the University of Minnesota.
