Meet the Team


Head of Special Collections

Interviewer & Oral Historian

Sarah Langsdon

Hello all! I’m Sarah and my pronouns are she/her. I am an ally and mom to two queer children. We call ourselves the big gay family. I work at Weber State University documenting the history of Weber/Davis Counties and want to make sure that the queer community is part of that. One fun fact about me is that I did a study abroad in Moscow, Russia and oh boy, the stories I could tell.


Drag Queen

Samantha Stratford

I'm just your run of the mill Shakespearean Girl Next Door type! Meaning I was born in a celtic forest back in the early 1500's and I've been pounding the cobblestone as an actress, singer, starlet, (witch, historian, cat enthusiast) since then. I’m excited for the opportunity to hear the living history of our community through this fabulous project.


Manuscript Processor & Oral Historian

Lorrie Rands

Hi, my name is Lorrie and my pronouns are she/her. I am gay and a mother of a queer child. I work at Weber State University as an oral historian helping to document the histories and stories of individuals of Weber/Davis Counties. I initially wanted to better understand my child with this project, and now I am excited to share that understanding with the larger community. Fun fact about me is that I love to crochet stuffed animals, especially dinosaurs!


Intern Librarian 

Camila Becerril 

I am a Weber State Alumni and now Intern Librarian working on this project! I am born and raised in Utah and I'm excited to learn more queer Utah history! I am currently getting my Master's degree in Library Science from the University of Arizona!
