"Um, this is something we did a few times. Over in that prior exhibitions. You might remember Kerry James Marshall, uh, curated himself a selection of works from the Met's collection. That meant something to him. So there's a precedent for this, and I think we were especially compelled to do this with Neil. Because she's often thought up to be a bit art. Historically anomalous, um, a little bit without context that she was so much her own artist her own being with a paintbrush. That she wasn't her work was never really deeply in dialogue with the work of others, either historic artists or her contemporaries, so I think this is one of the many, Um I think stereotypes around meal that we really wanted to undo and show and what you mentioned The The trio of Cassatt's on girl and Meal is one of my favorite moment. In fact, um and we're not being didactic. In this situation. You may have noticed that there were no chat labels. No explanation. With regard to individual pictures. But let's uh let viewers and visitors and contemplate and come to some of their own conclusions about the dialogues going going on between these great works of art. Randall Kelly told us what was one of her favorite paintings in the show. What's yours? Yeah, well, I mean, I will admit up front that it's very difficult, um, to to choose as you would expect, because I You know, I have one myself so much about me on the process of Being fortunate to work on this project for the last 22. Plus years, Um And I've come to love Neil. Very stuff of the way I love heard in the context of the Works Progress Administration. Um, the the Spanish Harlem period is full of great works of art, but for me, I mean, I would love to. Um, I shouldn't say hold on to my colleagues at Cleveland wouldn't like like me to say this. But Jackson Jackie Curtis and Rita Red, which is in the collection of the Cleveland. Um, Museum is really such just such a standout for me. I think partly because I wrote about This work in the context of Neil's cleared clear sitters for the catalog. And so for me, this is one of those zeitgeist paintings. This is for me. This is the seventies in New York. This is the seventies In the Lower East side. It wasn't obviously painted in the Lower East side. But, uh, Jackie Curtis and read the red were such especially Jackie with such a kind of a cult figure in the Lower East Side. Um Underground or counterculture that but for me, this is one of those moments where Neil really captures the zeitgeist. It's just interesting work. Kelly. Alice Neel also painted New York City, her home city, and she lived in all these different neighborhoods across New York and its village, Spanish Harlem, the bronc. I mean, there is one painting that is, if you stand underneath the Highline right now, it looks honest, exactly the same. Um what How does the view of the city we see in her painting shift as she as she moves through life. That's a very good question. You know, she she is. On the street in more of her early painting, so the paintings of Greenwich Village and the street teams that she made in Spanish Harlem They actually some of the ones that she painted. On the Upper Upper West Side, You know, they say that the point of view is is that of somebody who is embedded on the street, you know, standing on the sidewalk standing at the entrance to Central Park and so Her point of view on the city is literally that of somebody embedded, you know who's living it, Um, living it from the ground up. And But then, as she grows older, she begins to paint more and more images from her window. And again, this is the apartment on the Upper Upper West Side, 301 107th, I think And and maybe she's older and so getting out and about perhaps is harder. But she becomes enamored of the facade that you see that she would see outside of her window enamored of the scenes that she saw on the ground, and those are some of her most abstract paintings, and I think that she appreciates Comes to appreciate late night the the possibilities of abstraction that the city presents to her early on. It's really about the people. It's about the buzzing activity of the street, but later she is interested in the architecture that the structure of the city Before I let you both go. I want to ask you about people because, as I mentioned, this has become a hugely popular show. People are waiting in line for an hour to get through the show, and it's funny. One of the security guard said to me said Don't give us too good A review. It's been kind of crazy in here. He was kidding, obviously, but I'm curious Randall, did you Did you anticipate this? Yes And no, I thought Neil Would be a hit. Um, I didn't anticipate The additional kind of layers of meaning the project would accrue because of this past year that we've been through, um together and I think one of the reasons it's It's resonating so deeply is that Neil acknowledges suffering, um, the the human condition of suffering, but also, um, a company. That suffering is a always accompanied by a sense of endurance. Um, so there's a great resonance, I think, and also, frankly, her images of New York From the thirties. Resonates so deeply and um, around with. But the city was looking like a year ago, in fact, and also hurt hurt, politically engaged work, especially for you willing to G looks a lot like protests that erupted after George Floyd's Murder. Um, a little over a year ago. So it just hits you on multiple fronts and also say it was more of a nuanced detail. Um, Jeff and Brian, who are um It's a couple that is on the facade and signage. Just the fact the very fact that they're touching is I think resident in a way after a year of social distancing that that image wouldn't resonate in the same way without so just in multiple ways, I think Um, yeah, And we're we couldn't be happier. We're glad that people are having this kind of meaningful, deep experience. A kind of catharsis with Neil. Um, it's appropriate. That was my conversation with Metropolitan Museum of Art curator is Kelly Baum and Randall Griffey about the show. Alice Neel, People come first, which closes this Sunday, August 1st. Up next Adopting a rescue dog is.
Throw the first Stone(wall)
"In the early hours of june twenty eighth nineteen sixty nine new york city police raided the greenwich village. Gay club called the stonewall inn. Let me set the scene for you. Gay clubs were much more than a place to get drunk or look for love in the nineteen sixties and frankly all the decades leading up to it. They were not exactly accepting of lgbt people. Being queer wasn't only societally unacceptable. It was against the law same sex relations between consenting adults or illegal in new york city in nineteen eighty and you could be arrested on the street for not wearing at least three articles of gender appropriate clothing now out on a limb here and say that men in skirts found themselves on the receiving end of that one a lot more often than women and slacks did understandably. Lgbt people flocked to gay bars and clubs refuges where they could socialize and more importantly be themselves openly. You still weren't safe there though. The new york city state liquor. Authority penalized and shutdown. Gay bars arguing. That the mir gathering of more than three homosexuals was technically disorderly. These regulations were overturned in nineteen sixty six thanks to the efforts of strident activists but things as simple as holding hands with someone of the same gender was still illegal so police harassment of gay bars continued. There was another player. In the game the mafia the mob saw profit to be had in catering to the displaced and disenfranchised gay clientele by the mid nineteen sixties. The genovese crime family controlled most of the gay bars in the village in nineteen sixty six. They purchased the stonewall inn which had been a bog standard bar and restaurant renovated it on the cheap and reopened it as a gay bar. Stonewall inn was registered as a private bottle bar which did not require a liquor licence because patrons were supposed to bring their own liquor club attendees had to sign their names in a book to maintain the club's membership facade. Police initially left the stonewall inn alone by dint of regular bribes from the jennifer easies patrons benefited by the fact that the police hassling the owners but it also meant that the owners could run the club as they saw fit which meant as cheaply as possible. The club lacked a fire exit. There was no running water behind the bar to wash the glasses. Though there was plenty of water in the drinks themselves and the less said about the bathrooms the better

Many wondered if the nypd headset. Frank up my guest hosts ashen. Elena are going to take over from here to discuss the circumstances that resulted in frank. Serpico shooting and what happened when he survived. Thanks vanessa frank. Serpico always wanted to be a cop for him. It was never about the power or the possibility of seeing his name in the papers. Frank serpico merely wanted to make new york city place. Unfortunately when frank joined the nypd. In september of nineteen fifty-nine the department was experiencing rampant corruption as a kid. Frank witnessed firsthand. How a cop could abuse his authority while working in his father's shop an officer came in. First you shine when frank finished the officer got up and left without paying. Frank was stunned but assumed the officer was an outlier. Just a bad apple. He got a rude awakening. Once he became a patrolman himself years later when frank was still a police cadet he and his partner arrested. A couple of suspects while protecting vandalized synagogue. They thought the nature of the arrest should have led to some kind of award but the precinct clerk only agreed to make a note for a citation if franken his partner slipped them a few bucks. Frank realized that bribery was the key to success in the department but he refused to accept that instead he would stay honest and work his way to the top by doing good police. Work throughout the nineteen sixties. Frank didn't partake in any of the graphs are corruption. He knew his partners might take payoffs but he wouldn't. Naturally this made cops suspicious of him and it didn't help that. Frank looked nothing like a cop as a plainclothes officer. Frank didn't have to adhere to a standard dress code so he decided to look like his personality. He was bohemian long hair. Long beard psychedelic clothes. Frank lived in greenwich village and hung out with the counterculture. He was the complete antithesis of the nypd. Finally in one thousand nine hundred sixty seven alongside only ally. Detective david dirk. Frank started making noise to the departments higher ups and authorities at city hall for three years. They brought credible evidence of police corruption. And yet nothing was done. Fed up franken. david did the unimaginable. They went to the press in the middle of one thousand nine hundred seventy the new york times published an expose on corruption in the nypd. The report tarnished the nypd and led to the nap commissions formation. An official investigation into police corruption. All thanks to frank serpico in the department nuit frank coming forward. Put an even bigger target on his back by the end of nineteen seventy. He was transferred to narcotics where he was a total pariah. Frank serpico was shot in the face on february third nineteen seventy-one during what was supposed to be a routine drug bust however his partners refused to help him and let him bleed out in the hallway. He only lived because an elderly tenant called the paramedics. Frank miraculously survived though. He was left with bullet fragments in his skull and permanent hearing loss and despite the attempt on his life frank refused to remain silent later that year. He testified before the knapp commission making him one of the most important officers to testify against the police. A year later frank retired from the nypd and lived in europe until one thousand nine hundred eighty since then. He's continued to speak out against corruption and police brutality. He's still holds out. Hope that there will be fair and honest cops. Patrolling our streets.

And it was hardly my favorite song from the show. But I really love the way you do it. It just feels very Very meaningful to me. Can you talk about why you chose this? And what the song means to you? Well, this goes back to the thing we were talking about earlier. I was mentioning my father's record collection. Guys and dolls was in the collection, and I listened to it as a kid. And, interestingly enough, at least it's interesting to me is that When I started my career in 1969 Guy called Milton Kramer saw me playing in a little folk club in Greenwich Village called the Gaslight. And he invited me up to talk to him about a publishing deal. And he was working for Frank Music, which was Frank Lessers publishing companies. So all the songs that were on my first couple of albums were published by by that company. I never got to meet Frank Lesser at that point. He was sick and dying of lung cancer in the hospital. But Frank Lester was one of the greats. And, you know, he wrote the music and the words So you know, he did it all. Many roads, so many different kinds of shows. I mean, there's guys and dolls, that's all kind of, you know, streetwise talk. And then he wrote, um, basically an operetta. All right. Most happy like an opera. The most happy fella?

FEAR OF FEAR
"This lady was cautious. She decided she wouldn't let herself go and her drinking and she would never never take that morning drink. I didn't think I was an alcoholic. I thought my problem was that I had been married to a drunk for twenty-seven years and when my husband found a a I came to the second meeting with him thought it was wonderful simply marvelous for him but not for me. Then I went to another meeting hand. I still thought it was wonderful for him. But not for me. It was a hot summer night in 1949 down in the Greenwich Village group and there was a little porch out there in the old meeting place on Sullivan Street. And after the meeting I went out on the steps for some are dead in the doorway stood a lovely young girl. Who said are you one of us houses to I said, oh goodness know my husband is he's in there. She told me her name. I said, I know you from somewhere. It turned out that she had been in high school with my daughter. I said Eileen. Are you one of those people and she said oh, yes. Yep. In this as we walk back through the hall. I for the first time in my life said to another human being I'm having trouble with my drinking too. She took me by the hand and introduce them to the girl that I'm very proud to call my sponsor this girl and her husband are both in a a and she said to me oh, but you're not the alcoholic. It's your husband. I said, yes. She said how long have you been married? I said 27 years. She said 27 years to an alcoholic. How did you ever stand it? I thought now here's a nice sympathetic so long, this is for me. I said, well I stood it to keep the home together. And for the children's sake she said, yes, I know. You're just another martyr, aren't you? I walked away from that girl grinding my teeth and cursing under my breath. Fortunately. I didn't say a word to George on the way home, but that night I tried to go to sleep and I thought your some martyr Jane wage. Look at the record and when I looked at it, I knew I was just as much a drunk as George was if not worse. I nudged Jorge the next morning and I said I'm in and he said oh, I knew you'd make it. I started drinking nearly thirty years ago right after I was married my first drinking spree was on corn liquor and I was allergic to it. Believe me. I was deathly sick every time I took a drink but we had to do a lot of entertaining my husband like to have a good time. I was very young and I wanted to have a good time to the only way I knew to do it was to drink right along with him. I got into terrific trouble with my drinking I was afraid and I had made my mind up that I would never get drunk. So I was watchful and careful. We had a small child and I loved her dearly so that held me back quite a bit in my drinking career even so every time I drank I seem to get in trouble. I always wanted to drink too much. So I was watchable always watchful counting my drinks if we were invited to a formal party and I knew they were only going to have one or two drinks. I wouldn't have any I was being very cagey. Because I knew that if I did take one or two, I might want to take five or six or seven or eight. I did stay fairly good for a few years, but I wasn't happy and I didn't ever let myself go in my drinking as my son our second child came along and as he became school age and was away at school. Most of the time something happened. I really started drinking with a bang. I never went to a hospital. I never lost a job. I was never in jail and unlike many others. I never took a drink in the morning. I needed a drink but I was afraid to take a morning drink because I didn't want to be a drunk. I became a drunk anyway, but I was scared to death to take that morning drink. I was accused of it many times when she went to play bridge in the afternoon, but I really never did take a morning drink. I was still woozy from the night before. I should have lost my husband and I think that only the fact that he was an alcoholic to kept us together.

Revisiting the Archive: Larry Kramer
"I've talked before in this series revisiting the archive about anger. How it can fuel action? How an anger is partnered with love? It can produce a kind of righteous rage that propels us those of us who lived through the AIDS crisis. Know about it. Some of US learned it from Larry Kramer who died this week in Manhattan where he's lived for. Decades Larry was famous for being one of the first billions to sound the alarm during that last epidemic. The one that began forty years ago he was on the front lines even before aids was called AIDS and became a global epidemic at swept away more than thirty million lives before AIDS. Larry was best known for his work as a screenwriter and author but the virus that was claiming so many lives in the political indifference political negligence that greeted it turned Larry into a very public activist. His friends were dying and he felt compelled to do something more than to just bury the dead and mourn their loss in nineteen. Eighty-two Larry co-founded a gay men's health crisis now known as GM five years later he co-founded act up the AIDS coalition to unleash power. Act Up came to be known for its brilliant use of public protests to bring attention to the epidemic by early nineteen eighty nine. When I I met Larry AIDS take in more than sixty thousand lives. Most of them. Gay Men Larry quickly earned a reputation as an uncompromising firebrand with a fierce temper. I'm not proud of it. But that kind of person generally inspires me to run in the other direction. I was more than a little anxious. I approached the door to Larry's apartment in a building that fronts Washington Square Park in New York. City's Greenwich Village. As I said when this episode originally aired I got myself worked up. Nothing I brace myself for a tornado and found the teddy bear. Here's the same. Larry welcomed me into a spacious apartment and showed me into his all white book line living room and I took a seat opposite him across a broad desk as I said at my tape recorder and attach the Mike to his shirt. We talked about how we both had wanted to find a husband early in life and settle down and that led us back in time to Larry's memories as it confused and Unhappy College student in the Early Nineteen fifties. I pressed record interview with Larry Kramer Thursday January twenty six thousand nine hundred eighty nine at the home of Larry Kramer in New York City. Interviewer is Eric. Marcus tape one side one. When I went to Yale I thought I was the only gay person in the world and tried to kill myself because I was so lonely. Did try to What am I think that was fifty? Three was the year my freshman year. Yeah is awful. I mean I do want to go back that far curious because I was a college student on seventy six desperately unhappy. We're at Vassar College. There were there were a lot of gays. They weren't that many people think there were a lot if there were so many gays. Why was I so unhappy? Miserable person and And deaths seemed very appealing at moments during my freshman year when I was dating a woman in making off the man by in life and fifty three must have been much more difficult than seventy six at Vassar. You can even start in shifty. Three Easter I knew I was gay. I think from the day I was born and I think that there have been I. I now know that there were isolate. They were experiences all through before. I even got to Yale. And they were all covert in guilt. Inducing on on everybody's part so the it seemed as if all those early years were spent trying to deny these feelings the feelings would sort of get to strong erupt in and I would have an experience. Which would autumn always make me feel guilty in one way or another and then you put it you become. Sylvia's would come down for a while a week a week or two and Yale was awful. There was a gay bar called parolees. It was awful the time when I finally have the courage to go there. It was only two blocks from campus. But it was a million years away. It was very dark and grey and inside and smokey and and filled with old old older man and I only went the once and somebody picked me up. A car drove for like hours before we found a place that was quiet to do it and then he drove me back where you didn't say a word all of that list of yourself. I eight two hundred aspirin. Oh my God talk about slow and Miss. You must have been pretty miserable to swallow two hundred and yours anymore. Will after you wanted out. Was that who knows. It's a scene. I'll never forget the scene of taking pills the Yup and find you're still better. I didn't wake up. I I went to bed and I got scared and I call. The campus. Police came took me to the hospital and put myself and that was in woke then I fell asleep and I woke up in a room with bars and after grace new haven hospital and there. Was this very unpleasant hospital psychiatrist. Who said all right Mr Cramer? Why did you do it and I go fuck yourself or words to that end he said? I'm now you're not going to be let out of this hospital until you tell us why you did it. And I just had a few rubbed me the wrong way and I wouldn't have told who who knew why I did it anyway. So my brother who's always sort of looked after me came and got me out and he was friends with the dean of Freshmen. My brother had been the before me and And it was you know ordinarily when something like that happen you were shipped off to go join the army really in those days. Yeah and then you come back to Yale and you've grown up but they let me stay. If I went to the University of Coyote. Just his name was Dr Fry Clement Fry.

From the LGBTQ Vault: Sylvia Rivera & Marsha P. Johnson
"Sixth season of our podcast is focused on LGBT activism in the Post stonewall seventies two of the most prominent trans activists to emerge out of that period were Sylvia Rivera and Marsha p Johnson in one thousand nine hundred seventy the year after the stonewall uprising in New York City's Greenwich Village. The two friends founded street transvestite action revolutionaries or star and set up a barebones refuge in a run down apartment building on the lower east side in Manhattan for street kids much like themselves. They called it star House. In December Nineteen Seventy Liza Cowan and twenty year old reporter for Wbai radio conducted. What we believe is the oldest recorded interview with Sylvia Marsha and other members of star? She is a reel to reel tape recorder and set out to do a story on what was then known as crossdressing. Eventually a single reel containing an edited version of the interview found. Its way into the basement of the lesbian. Her story archives in Brooklyn New York. And that's where making gay histories self-described Archive Rat Brian. Free founded in the spring of two thousand nineteen before we share some of that incredibly rare tape with you. I thought I'd ask Brian about his experience of discovering this long lost interview. And how did you find this tape. Where were you what were you doing so I was looking for audio for the fifth season of making a history for our stonewall season listen and my mission was to find archival audio tapes that were made around nineteen sixty eight to nineteen seventy-one so I went to the LGBT center archives? I went to the New York Public Library and I went to the lesbian. Her story archives in the basement of Lesbian Her story archives. I was going through all of their cassettes for WBAI shows. I didn't find anything thing that reached back that was applicable to what we were looking for but out of the corner of my eye in the basement I saw a box of open. Reel you've you. Which is an older style of audio? Recording then cassettes would be. So what is can you describe. What Open Reel Recording is is you see in the movies or in photographs an actual real of tape. Yes these are the big reels. These are like three inch five inch the seven inch ten inch and I didn't know what was in this box when I saw it but I went upstairs to the volunteer archivist. I Rachel Gordon and I asked her if I could go through it and right there in the middle of the box. I pulled out this recording that was labeled star. I was afraid to open at because some of these tapes. They're so fragile when they're fifty Sixty seventy years old. They are so fragile that you can destroy them and I know how difficult it is to get archival material surrounding star. Yeah so what did you when you saw this. Besides being afraid that you would you could possibly damage the tape I mean it's almost like finding the holy we grow. You know you WANNA listen to it immediately when you find a tape like that and you can't why couldn't you just play it. Well for one there are some tapes that as you play. They will erase when they're fifty years old. So you will listen to it but nobody else will. So if you WANNA have a tape digitize like that what do you do. We took the tape to a studio in Harlem called Old Swan Studios that specializes in this type of digitisation. I took so much care when I took it out of that building I I was so afraid of damaging it it was like I had ten thousand dollars in my backpack and couldn't let anyone near it so I arrived at Swansea in Harlem and Robert. The sound engineer started rewinding the tape and when he did every single manual edit snapped. Oh my so. This is an edited. This was an that was done. That was then edited. And and and how do they edit tape. Well they had to take it physically and slice it and then with adhesive give glue at packed together so each and every time it hit one of these physical edits it would snap which for me was terrifying. But for him was just run of the mill he would just take the two ends reapply adhesive and keep rewinding it once he rebounded. What did he do next? Well he was kind enough to let me sit in the studio and listen to it as he played it for the first time and I knew I was listening to something very special. What made it special special for me? Because they're not just talking about the organization that they created they're also talking about their lives and they're talking about how they see the world around them and how they see gender. It's very personal. They're not altering the same line. What did you take away from hearing that recording? I think it reminded me of how young everyone was. Then I think the March Johnson and Sylvia Rivera that I've grown accustomed to. They were older by at the time. the film that I've seen of them the video that I've seen of them the recordings that I've listened to from them. They had more time under their belt. And this it was it was like they were freshly ride in New York and just letting it all about the quality of tape. You're about to hear in this remarkable and far-ranging conversation is a bit uneven. In addition to a snippet of Jefferson an airplane. You'll also notice hissing in the background. During part of the discussion anyone who has ever lived in an Old New York City apartment will recognize that sound. It's coming coming from faulty valve of esteem heat radiator. The first person to speak is nineteen year old Sylvia Rivera. The second is someone named Victor and the third is Marcia Johnson who was twenty five at the time before my mother passed away three years my mother used to Jesmyn Golf Clubs and my mother. My grandmother kept on one little blouses and girls stocks of about six seven years old. Before if I wouldn't start addressing boys 'cause during that period that's when I discovered my homosexuality was like you know watching television and placed in myself and the role of the female or just pricing myself As another there's another boy in the Mail on demand was praying such a fantastic love role in the television. And and when I left home at eleven was really when I went into transparent system and make hustling speech and the game against experiences. DIFFERENT THAN SYLVIA'S I. I didn't know secretly because My mother would catch me. She would forbid it. And by the time I was five years old I knew enough that Do these things secretly So I used to and no one was around to put on a and wear women's clothes close. I can get my hands on but otherwise I grew up quite masculine. I went to school. I played baseball. I went to college so and the beard and was the revolutionary did time in jail for Pacifist demonstrations and and Just recently I I decided what's You know why not wear the clothes. I prefer to wear what I was. I was the time I was living a masculine role that I didn't really prefer at least I didn't prefer to do it. Permanent preferred the times to be feminine And women's Lib people Feel that the women are forced to take certain roles which are unacceptable to them and they want to break out no. I've often felt the same way about being a man that I've been forced to take certain roles number one something as unimportant as the clothes I have to wear men's restrictions. Men's dress are much more severe than the restrictions on women's dress of men are forced to look a certain way and I didn't want to look that way then then of course there's a man has to be tough. He has to have responsibility to take care of people. You know suppose I wanted to be petted or I wanted to be taken care of. As I was growing up I met a lot of men. They never pale to me to my sexually. I used to try and keep away from because my hometown. You mistakes where you were out of it and they recall you all kinds of names And then when I first came in York seventeen years old that's when I started getting kind of invest breath more like a transvestite. I started out with makeup in nineteen sixty three nine thousand nine hundred sixty four And in one thousand nine hundred sixty five. I was coming out more and I was still wearing make up but I was still going to jail just wearing doing makeup in one thousand nine hundred sixty nine. I started wearing female attire full-time usually I wear dress every day of the week. I I just don't put on much makeup anything until after the dog because address too much attention if we make in the daytime they might think that I was a male. Al But if I were a little makeup they think I'm a female and he's right on I and if I will not make it night they automatically know female female they really can tell the difference about me because I'm on my way to be.

50 years of Stonewall
"Fifty years ago this week patrons of the stonewall in a gay bar in New York's Greenwich Village stood up to police who had raided the venue since then the stonewall uprising has become the most storied event in the history of the LGBT, right struggle. But there's a history that has been and continues to be both under documented and overlooked. There isn't even a consensus on exactly what transpired on the evening of the uprising itself, I wanted to find out more about what forces have shaped the documentation of LGBT history to begin I paid a visit to pick Marcus at his home in Manhattan. My name is Eric Marcus. And I am the founder and host of the making gays repot cast. And we bring LGBTQ history to life to the voices of the people who lived it, and we draw much of material material from my archive of one hundred interviews that I recorded thirty years ago for an oral history book of the same name. I knew nothing about the movement before nineteen sixty nine I thought everything began stonewall. I discovered that was wasn't the case that I was really outraged. I thought why didn't I know this history to me? And so in most ways the most interesting part of our history is the history before stonewall, and I was able to find all of these people, mostly elderly, who had been there at the very beginning of the movement in the US, and I got to record their stories, my conception of LGBTQ history, changed dramatically that I spoke with people on there wasn't much written about it at the time I started my work, and so I had ideas about people, especially in the early movement that there was some how accommodation as so that all they wanted to do as simulate and it was the perspective of the people who wrote about it writing through the lens of the nineteen eighty s. What I didn't realize what the times were like and what people were up against early in the movement, and how courageous really radical, they were in their thinking that they that they imagined a world that could be different and slowly found a way I fit into the world. And then to begin changing it, and that to me made them radicals, even though some of a lot of the activists came along later looked at them and thought of them as less than and old fashioned that somehow there, what they did didn't matter very much, given the, the history of the movement goes back so far before stonewall. What do you think explains the editor of stonewall as a kind of watershed within algae, PT, Hugh history, stonewall uprising in stonewall was indeed a watershed of the movement? It was a turning point. But there were between fifty and sixty existing organizations in nineteen sixty nine there was a, a modest national movement. What stonewall did is it? Channeled or I should say the organizing that happened in the aftermath of stonewall based on the infrastructure that existed already channel, this new energy and anger into a much larger national movement. It, it inspired it triggered the gay liberation phase of what had been called the home afoul movement. So you went from fifty to sixty organizations in nineteen sixty nine to a year later, fifteen hundred organizations across the country, and then another year later twenty five hundred organizations thousands of young people at colleges and universities were brought into the movement. It was very young movement, and the people who are involved earlier were for the most part swept away some people continued on through the next days of the movement, and they brought their experience into this new phase of the movement. In fact, the first organizing meetings that were held right after stonewall were hosted by the Mattachine society, an organization founded in nineteen fifty in Los Angeles. And the daughters of leaders in organization for lesbians, founded in nineteen fifty five so it didn't. I thought that the movement sprang whole from the uprising of the stonewall inn, I didn't know, otherwise until I did my research and discovered that. It required. Concentration organizing in hard work to get from the stall uprising to the first pride March here in New York when you're later and then to this movement, that's now grown across the country and all over the world records of LGBT life have been shaped by the same divisions influence other histories, these include splits along sexual racial and generational lines. The lesbian her story archives are a historical repository run by lesbians for lesbians. I met Maxine Wolfe, one of the archives coordinate is in the Brooklyn brownstein. Whether kept most archives that call themselves LGBT are g and t they have practically no ill. Okay or be. So part of it is that we can't rely on other people to preserve our history. If you read most history books about the gay movement. A lot of what is in. There is about men and their movement, not what lesbians would doing at the same time, and even if they're lesbians in the organization, they don't get as much visibility. So this is about making sure that lesbians are at the center of that history. Also the way that we define it is very different than most archives. We define it as being as broad as possible we don't want to create an archive that's about only about famous lesbians, which most archives, they want material from well-known members of the community, and we have that, but we also value, the idea as Joan Nestle said that any lesbian at walks in here can see an image of herself which. Means that we have the papers of lesbian prostitutes, and go, go dancers, and truck drivers and secretaries as well as having papers of people like orgy Lord, or Audrey enrich, or other well-known, lesbians, would you mind showing me around? So on the first floor we put the things that most people who are not necessarily academic, researches would want to see novels autobiographies biographies. We also have literary criticism we have and Thala geez. We have poetry books. We have poetry anthologies, my favorite thing on this floor, though is we have books from other countries. And one of my favorite books is this, which was may? It's, it's called a Dikshit airy and it's handmade by a group of Japanese lesbians who brought it here, and it has phrases in English, and then Japanese, and then Japanese and English, and you can see it's all handmade. So it has things like are you monogamous? Women's take back the night it has a Butch on the streets in between the sheets. This is all an English. And then in Japanese this, reflects the way that I think, so many lesbians feel about wanting to make sure that people remember us. And that's what this archive is about the most touching thing that happens here is to see somebody come in and see something that they were part of some lesbian will walk through the door from some other state and, you know, an older woman who will say, you know, I was part of this poetry, collective in one thousand nine hundred seventy five and I bet you know, we did this book but you probably don't have it. And then I'll say, well, let's look, and then we look and we find it and people cry, you know, women cry when they come in here and see a couple of things not just something that's there's, but a place that respect. Who they are a place that is beautiful, and that is put together and that cares about who they are. And that's very important to me. And I think to everybody who is at the archives today, LGBT history is documented move freely in extensively even ever before. But as the wheel celebrates pride this month, we would do well to remember the people whose lives anti, we're not giving the attention. They deserved for multiple twenty four in New York on Henry Sheridan.

Cosmo Murphy, which for music fan can sometimes feel like going to church, and that's fitting because they're always held on Sundays at these events.

There was a general cynicism toward hippie ideals and New York City in particular was more adept at celebrating the individual a cohesive cultural center had not yet replaced the unifying force field of the sixties counterculture movement.
