This video recording presents Outrageous Oral Volume 3. For this event, attendees welcomed members of The Dallas Way GLBT History Project to the University of North Texas (UNT) campus. This is a group of community members dedicated to preserving the history of gay life in Dallas, and their Outrageous Oral events bring together artists, activists, and civic leaders to share their stories of life as gay people in the DFW area, pre-Stonewall, pre-DADT, and during the first cataclysmic years of the AIDS Epidemic. These oral histories are alternately hilarious and compelling, heartwarming and devastating. The Digital Scholarship Cooperative (DiSCo) and the UNT Libraries join the students of Glad: UNTs Queer Alliance, and the UNT Multicultural Center in bringing these stories to campus on National Coming Day (October 11, 2012), to help build bridges between UNT and the community, and between generations of gay and trans men and women. The UNT Libraries will be represented tonight by Arturo Ortega, who will share stories of what it was like growing up in Laredo, Texas.
