Biographical / Historical

Founded in 2015, the Oral History Project's goal is to collect, preserve, and make available the experiences of at least 100 long term survivors, physicians, activists, religious and political leaders and others impacted by HIV / AIDS epidemic in Houston, Harris County and Southeast Texas, with special emphasis on those who experienced the early years of the epidemic. Founding partners of the project include Legacy Community Health, Montrose Center, and the Woodson Research Center, Rice University. It is the policy of The oH Project to redact the names of third parties in reference to their HIV / AIDS status or sexual orientation unless The oH Project has written consent from the third party to be named or proof that the person has shared his or her HIV / AIDS status and/or sexual orientation in a public record. Interviewee donor agreements which document the interviewee's agreement for internet access of their interview are maintained by the Woodson Research Center.
