Wow. Series of interviews with Lou Sullivan, from about 1988-1990. He talks about being a gay trans man in the larger gay men’s community (as far as I know, he was one of the first — if not the first? — openly gay trans men to medically transition and make his experience public), living with AIDS and AIDS activism, and his relationship with his disabled sister. This is truly powerful stuff. Thank you to Rev. Megan Rohrer and the GLBT Historical Society for making this available on youtube, and to transartorialism for posting.
