The Transgender Oral History Project emerged out of a recognition that there were significant gaps in queer histories of the prairies, one of which being a tendency to overlook transgender experiences. By recording oral interviews with trans people, this project aims to help historians and community members gain a richer understanding of the lives and work of trans individuals in the region. Since labels for understanding diverse experiences of gender such as “transgender” have changed significantly in recent history and will likely continue to do so, these interviews focus heavily on personal understandings of gender identity.
Collection consists of one oral history project for which Karen Clements was the Primary Investigator. The Community Mental Health Activists/Advocates in Manitoba Oral History archives consists of 18 interviews (from a total of 25 interviews in the overall project) with mental health activists/advocates in Manitoba, conducted between August and October, 2017. All interviews are fully transcribed, and 17 have available audio. The research project was funded through a Brandon University, Faculty Health Studies Research Grant. The definition of activist/advocate for the purposes of recruitment was an individual who identifies (by self or others) as a mental health activist/advocate in Manitoba working for social and system change in the area of mental health. This did not include individuals whose advocacy is limited to advocacy for conventional services for one individual or individuals whose advocacy is limited to advocacy for clients as part of professional clinical work.
