• Starting off, a little-known half-hour documentary, All-Out! Dancing in Dulais, spotlighting Lesbians and Gays Support the Miners (LGSM), a mainstay for an intensely fought 1984-85 mine strike in Wales.
• Next up: longtime queer activist Su Docekal, author of “On the Front-Lines of Lavender Labor History,” will tell how an unprecedented combination of LGBTQ militants and Teamsters came together in 1977 to fight union-busting and racist, homophobic practices at the Coors Brewing Co.
Join the discussion on how to build such efforts today. Everyone welcome.
