Author Amelia Possanza's conversational tone welcomes listeners to a topic that ranges from ancient Greece to modern times. She delves into archival records in search of lesbian history while also reflecting on her own. The connections Possanza develops with the complex women she researches are audible, by turns thoughtful, awed, and eager. These women include early-twentieth-century memoirist Mary Casal, political activist and scholar Gloria E. Anzaldúa, and Amy Hoffman, caregiver of a friend during the AIDS crisis. Audio recordings from archived interviews with Mabel Hampton, a dancer and founding member of the Lesbian Herstory Archives, and drag king Rusty Brown are invaluable additions to this listening experience. This absorbing production is a meaningful entry into ongoing conversations about sapphic history, identity, community, and the power of visibility.
