The Peak: SFYOU: Meet the professor engineering the Archives of Lesbian Oral Testimony, Elise Chenier. “It’s likely that the majority of people reading this have not heard about something called the Archives of Lesbian Oral Testimony (ALOT).

The goal of ALOT is to bring to light both lesbian and queer women histories that mainstream history has largely overlooked.”
