Abstract:
Description of aural thesis project for the Master of Oral History Program at Columbia University. One of the generationally consistent challenges of gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, and questioning (GLBTQ) human beings is the appropriation of Love. In addition to the minimal presence of non-stereotypical inclusions within popular culture, this dilemma is further exacerbated by the hegemony of hetero-normative narratives regarding family and gender roles articulated by religious organizations, mass media outlets, and political as well as legal institutions. For individuals who develop and display the courage necessary to outwardly proclaim intimate attraction and desire for members of the same sex, ultimately a complicated journey begins. En route, the old glue of tradition quickly become a series of subconscious traps for which the reconciliation between, reformation of, and translation into the meaning, structure, and execution of one’s psychological framework or worldview for interpersonal Love must be freed.
