Leslie Feinberg and LGBTQ Allyship

Leslie Feinberg and LGBTQ Allyship

The Lesbians in the ’70s Conference

I want to share some impressions of the “Lesbians in the ’70s conference” which took place October 8-10 at the CUNY Graduate Center. The conference took place over two almost unbearably intense days.
