Abstract
This article proposes and discusses a queer methodology for oral history research in the LGBTQ community. Music and musical mementos function as the basis of these oral histories, allowing the narrators to guide me through their stories about LGBTQ identity and music. In line with theories of the queer archive and feminist research methods, a collaborative and situated multimedia research approach with a focus on music is suggested. By means of four diverse narrators stories, I discuss how this methodology works in practice.
