There will be new content--but take the time to check out queer posts you might have missed!
I clicked too quickly today and, by mistake, sent out the new podcast only to paying subscribers: it’s a great interview with Bettina Aptheker about the history of queer people in the Communist Party, and it is now open to everyone here.
But you also might want to check out the following queer political content:
