CORAL needs volunteers for historical interviews


The Coalition of Rainbow Alliances (CORAL) in Springfield has started a history project and is looking for volunteers.

The group is recording interviews of people in Central Illinois to help preserve the region’s LGBTQ history.

The first interview, with Springfield activist and Prairie Flame publisher Buff Carmichael, came out last month.

The Illinois Eagle is collaborating with CORAL to help produce and distribute the videos.

To producea diverse set of interviews, CORAL is asking for volunteers who would like to conduct the interviews.

To get involved, contact Julie Koon at (501) 920-5747 or [email protected].
