"...and, if you put it together, that's what keeps people oppressed: is being disconnected from our own information--about the value of our lives."
Conversation with Ben Power about the history of the Sexual Minorities Archives (recorded: Nov 2018). In this episode, we feature the life and work of Ben and the Archives that literally traveled with him from Chicago to Western Massachusetts and changed and grew alongside his own transformations. We touch on some of the ways the Archives exists today, some of the gay, lesbian and transgender pioneers enshrined there and the roots of the SMA in butch and lesbian community organizing and mutual support.
