StoryCorps recording rural gays and lesbians

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - The oral-history recording project StoryCorps is planning to spend two months in Whitesburg and Lexington recording pieces including one about struggling to find acceptance in rural, culturally conservative places.

The non-profit's reports will include a report about Hindman resident Shannon Ratliff, who told The Lexington Herald-Leader that the focus will be on her struggles with being gay in central and eastern Kentucky.

StoryCorps is partnering in part with the Kentucky Equality Federation.

Jordan Palmer, who is the president of the state's equality federation [Kentucky Equality Federation] said the goal of the project is getting people to talk and open up.

StoryCorps interviews are broadcast on NPR's Morning Edition, and the discussions are preserved at the American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress.
