Welcome to episode three! In this episode I talk to Lambda Award winning writer and editor and the co-founder of the Lesbian Her-story Archives  Joan Nestle.

Joan identifies as a queer femme, and she sees her work of archiving history as critical to her identity as “a woman, as a lesbian, and as a Jew.”

I spoke to Joan as an International Women’s Day special interview for JOY 94.9 and we spoke about all sorts of engaging things, including International Women’s Day, The Lesbian Herstory Archives, about politics being a moment in communal history. What it means to be working class, and how socialism in now a dirty word.
