Gay Shame Podcast – Episode 6: Queer Insurrection – A Radical History of San Francisco

TRANSCRIPT BELOW!


The Marys interview one of their own to learn more about LAGAI-Queer Insurrection (formerly Lesbians And Gays Against Intervention), a radical collective that started organizing in 1983 against the USA’s murderous meddling in Central America.
 
How do you keep a group going for 40-plus years? Avoid burnout? Stay radical when so many others become liberals? If you’re feeling nihilistic, learn from people who’ve worked toward another world for longer than some of us have been alive.
