The March 2021 episode of Gender Jawn features Jack Gieseking in conversation with Gwendolyn Beetham (Associate Director of GSWS) and Davy Knittle (English PhD Candidate and GSWS Graduate Associate). The discussion is centered around the themes of Jack’s recently released book, A Queer New York, which examines lesbian and queer spaces in New York City from 1983-2008. The conversation takes us from long-standing challenges to urban queer communities such as gentrification and racial injustice, to the pleasures of queer space -- queer soup nights, lesbian go-go dancers and, of course, astrology.
