The Movie:

From Wikipedia:
Kiss Me, Kate is a musical written by Samuel and Bella Spewack with music and lyrics by Cole Porter. Kiss Me Kate is a 1953 MGM film adaptation of the Broadway musical of the same name. Inspired by "The Taming of the Shrew," it tells the tale of musical theater actors, Fred Graham and Lilli Vanessi, who were once married and are now performing opposite each other in the roles of Petruchio and Katherine in a Broadway-bound musical version of William Shakespeare's play.

About IHS:

In 2014, IHS launched its Indiana LGBT Collecting Initiative aimed at collecting and documenting the rich history from Indiana’s LGBT community, starting with the Central Indiana LGBT Oral History Project. The Indiana LGBT Collecting Initiative is supported by the Efroymson Family Fund and a grant from The Indianapolis Foundation, a CICF affiliate.
