The Brooks Fund History Project is a diverse multimedia record of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender (LGBT) life in Middle Tennessee, which will be archived in Nashville Public Library’s Special Collections Division: Oral History Collections. This collection will be accessible to the public and provides a record of an earlier generation that struggled for acceptance with themselves, their family and community. Since spring 2009, multiple interviews have been conducted chronicling the lives of gay, transgender and bisexual residents, reflecting on life in Middle Tennessee before 1970, and how homosexuality was viewed in the larger community.
