Hugh Ryan: Will Change How You Think About Queer History LGBTQ&A

    • Society & Culture

With his crucial new book, historian Hugh Ryan restores The Women's House of Detention to its rightful place in LGBTQ+ history. "It was one of the Village’s most famous landmarks: a meeting place for locals and a must-see site for adventurous tourists. And for tens of thousands of arrested women and transmasculine people from every corner of the city, the House of D was a nexus, drawing the threads of their lives together in its dark and fearsome cells."

Hugh Ryan, author of The Women's House of Detention: A Queer History of a Forgotten Prison joins us on the podcast to talk about how years before the Stonewall Uprising, the House of Detention changed queer history.

In the interview, we play a clip of Jay Toole talking about her time in prison. Click here to listen to the full interview with Jay.

LGBTQ&A is hosted by Jeffrey Masters and produced by The Advocate magazine, in partnership with GLAAD. A condensed transcript of each week's interview is posted on The Advocate's website. Follow us on Twitter: @lgbtqpod
