From growing up walking past MLK’s house in Atlanta, to running Harvey Milk’s media campaign in San Francisco, Gwenn Craig’s lifetime of activism is next-level. Jae and Gwenn dive into their unique challenges as women of color, Gwenn’s journey, and why white nuns are “always on some extra stuff.”

The Golden Queers is produced, hosted and edited by Jae Singh and M.R. Raquel, with music provided by Karl Casey at White Bat Audio. Find the Golden Queers online at thegoldenqueers.org. Executive producers for The Outwords Archive are Jack MacCarthy and Bliss, and OUTWORDS’ executive director is Mason Funk. OUTWORDS captures, preserves, and shares the stories of LGBTQ+ elders, to build community and catalyze social change. More info at theoutwordsarchive.org. The Golden Queers is funded by a generous grant from the California State Library’s Oral History Project.

Special thanks to this week's storyteller: Gwenn Craig. Additional thanks to Gordon Tan and Jude Patton.
