This Thursday, February 23, the First-Year Writing program at Eugene Lang College presents an exclusive preview of the acclaimed Making Gay History podcast’s second season, which brings the voices of queer history to life through decades-old intimate conversations with LGBTQ champions, heroes, and witnesses to history. Season one garnered praise from Slate, Wired, and Elle, among others.
