You probably read the Filling the Blanks blog post that we published back in October. Terrance, a senior at a Nashville high school, put together an event to showcase queer history. This interview (several months after the event) highlights Terrance experiences and reflections on the event and the importance of teaching and making Queer history available for younger generations.
You can check event photos and Terrance description of that day here.
