In this podcast the cast and creative team behind Summer Camps talk about the production and its origins. The show runs during the Fringe Festival and Pride Festival in Wellington from 14-16 and 21-23 March 2019.
"Did you know there used to be secret Lesbian Summer Camps in the 1970s and 80s? Younger generations don't even know they existed, they happened and ended almost without a trace. A group of young Queer people set out to preserve stories and connect with their LGBTQ+ elders in an exciting new documentary."
The interview was conducted in a circle, where the interviewee becomes the interviewer. The interview begins with Director Sabrina Martin. To learn more about the Lesbian Summer Camps visit the NZ History website.
