The following oral history is the result of a recorded interview conducted by a CSUMB student. The audio and draft transcript have not been edited for accuracy. This interview is part of the Oral History Community Memory Archive. The researcher is asked to bear in mind that they are listening to an original recording, and reading a verbatim transcript of the spoken word, rather than written prose.


Emma Booton is a fifty eight year old motorcycle builder and designer. She was born in Birmingham, UK. She has always lived a life of fun and adventure from punk rock concerts to motorcycle journeys. She grew up in the UK to a traditional English, 1960s family with her brothers, her loving and hardworking mother, and a very traditional father whom she lost at a young age. She loves to travel and even explored most, if not all, of the continental United States. When she moved to the United States, she settled in California and found her forever home. Now she lives with her partner Kathy in Marina, living a truly happy and adventurous life, which is what she always wanted when she was struggling to figure out her true self.
