1982 cassette tape from the Foolscap Oral History Project

Between 1981-1987, John Grube and Lionel Collier collected oral histories of earlier gay life in Toronto. Known as the “Foolscap Oral History Project,” or the “Toronto Gay History Project,” this enterprise produced nearly 100 interviews with Canadian gay men born in the first half of the twentieth century, who had spent most of their lives in Toronto. This is a short, 8 1/2 minute podcast created by undergrad Zohar Freeman and grad student Juan Carlos Mezo, designed to accompany their digital exhibition Mapping Foolscap: Gay Oral Histories 1981-1989.
