This collection of oral history materials was made possible by the generous willingness of various individuals to share their stories. I received funding for transcription, website design, and visual enhancement from the University of Pennsylvania, Colby College, York University, San Francisco State University, the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada, and the Ken Dawson Award (Center for Lesbian and Gay Studies at the Graduate Center, City University of New York). I acknowledge as well the valuable contributions of the John J. Wilcox Jr. LGBT Archives at the William Way Center in Philadelphia and especially its archivist Bob Skiba and his website: For their transcription work, I thank Katharine Bausch, Tracy Nathan, Abby Schrader, Lisa Williams, Kate Wilson, and Nathan Wilson. For website design and visual enhancement, I thank Elizabeth O'Gorek.
