In this newest episode, “Queer Elders,” host Andreas Copes and Adeja Wright turn the focus on prominent trailblazers, historical events, education, the LGBTQIA+ movement, and more.
First, Adeja talks to Temple students Allison Beck and Anna Rodefeld about Marsha P. Johnson and her role in the LGBTQIA community. They also discuss their experiences in getting an education in Queer History and how the absence of that education in schools is harmful. Later, Andreas is joined by the Curator of the John J. Wilcox, Jr. Archives at The William Way LGBTQ Community Center, Bob Skiba. Together, they discuss how and where to experience Queer History in the City of Brotherly Love and much more.
