    Ann Northrop: The Crucial Role of Women in ACT UP

    Ann Northrop: The Crucial Role of Women in ACT UP

    When Ann Northrop walked into her first ACT UP meeting in February of 1988, she felt immediately at home. "Oh my god, these are my people," she remembers thinking. "These are the cranky individualists who are really too weird to be part of normal society and they're here doing civil disobedience and direct action." The longtime activist joins us to talk about helping to craft ACT UP's media strategy, the controversial Stop The Church protest, and why for the most marginalized members of the LGBTQ+ community today, the AIDS crisis is ongoing.

This podcast broadens my world

Thank you so much Jeffrey for putting together an incredible slate of speakers. I have learned so much from this podcast in just a few short weeks. You manage to strike a wonderful balance between humorous and thought-provoking. I always leave the episode with incentive to learn more.

Also, I just connected with Edafe Okporo on Instagram and he wanted me to give you a shout out.
