Welcome to the Historically Queer podcast, your HQ for intimate moments from our movements, as told by LGBTQ activists of color.
I’m Alice Y. Hom, community historian and activist. In the late 1990s, I interviewed over 50 lesbian activists of color for my dissertation. These tape cassettes have long been gathering dust in my closet, and it’s time for stories of queer history to come out. For this biweekly podcast, I will talk to folks from across the country and dig deep into my archives. You will meet some of the pioneers who paved the way for LGBTQ rights and raised our political consciousness about the ways race, gender, and sexuality are inseparable. Together, we will connect the present to the past by uncovering stories of queer activism by people of color throughout the decades. Historically Queer will give you a deeper understanding of the present, reignite our sense of belonging, and propel us to action.
