Sample Footage: Alexis Danzig’s 1996 Road Trip

In 1996, Alexis Danzig, then an active volunteer at the Lesbian Herstory Archives, took a motorcycle trip across the US. As she went, she made over 20 stops to share a slideshow about the Archives in a variety of lesbian, feminist, and LGBTQ spaces, ranging from homes to bookstores to bars.

In this rough cut of sample footage, director Alexis Clements shows Alexis Danzig the archival materials (held at the Archives) from her trip. Danzig had never seen the archives of these materials before.
