Oral History Project interview
Paula Lackie ’84 talks about her search for a sense of belonging — before, during and after her time at Macalester. She describes challenges posed by loving someone who did not want to be public about their relationship and tells why she joined Women’s Soccer, which was only just becoming a varsity sport, as her main social activity. She recalls her first visits to the Macalester Lesbian and Gay Coalition office and discovering the journal, “You Are Not Alone,” for the first time during her final semester.
