The Pittsburgh Queer History Project collects all kinds of materials, and among them are original mixtapes, recorded at clubs across the city. There are over 30 tapes from 5 different clubs that have been digitized, and the collections continues to grow. Ranging from the mid 70s to the late 80s, the PQHP Mixtape collection revisits disco, new wave, doo-wop, techno, R&B, and hip-hop. Below is the first of many to be shared.
