Powerful Memoir: ‘Riding Fury Home’

Chana&Gloria1972

One of Marilyn Pittman’s best interviews. Chana Wilson grew up in the 1950s with a suicidal mother. She learned in adulthood that her mother had been a closeted lesbian given psychiatric treatments – including electroshock – to “cure” her. Mother and daughter developed a deep bond when both came out as lesbians in the women’s and gay liberation movements of the late 1960s and ’70s. There’s much more to this touching, fascinating story in Riding Fury Home.  Out in the Bay, Thursday, 7pm PT, October 8,  2015

‘A Simple Revolution’ ~ Poet Judy Grahn

Judy Grahn

Judy Grahn’s “Common Woman” poems in the ’60s and ’70s inspired a generation of lesbian feminists.
