Throughout history, the experiences of LGBT people have usually been erased or glossed over- Abraham Lincoln slept in the same bed with Joshua Speed but they were just “good friends” and Joan of Arc’s gender non binary nature was just a unique flair. But now the love that once dared not speak its name is crowing like a rooster.

In the new book, “Tell Me About It: LGBTQ Secrets, Confessions and Life Stories” historians Owen Keehnen and Sukie de la Croix ask everyday LGBTQ folks from all walks of life about their painful, touching and sometimes hilarious experiences coming into their own.

Listen as Owen and Sukie join us to take a look at the shared struggles of LGBT folks, from the book, The Well of Loneliness to why it was so important to go to gay bars.
