Our narrators, born between 1924 and 1967, lived in Spokane for a significant portion of their lives. Otherwise, they are a diverse group, from varied economic, geographic, ethnic/racial, and religious backgrounds. The project’s earliest narrators were activists prominent in the LGBT community. From there, Spokane’s Pride employed snowball sampling. In other words, we asked narrators to recommend other narrators, especially people who held perspectives that differed from their own.
