Conscious Voices History of the GLBT movement

59:59 minutes (54.91 MB)

Many folks regard the 1969 Stonewall uprising in Greenwich Village as the "start" of the GLBT rights movement, but GLBT rights advocacy, and even a militant physical resistance to a police raid on a popular GLBT hang-out pre-dated Stonewall by several years. A Communist Party member, Harry Hay started the first GLBT advocacy group as a committee of the Communist Party. It then became an independent organization called the Matachine Society. This program takes a look at Harry Hay, including audio of a speech he gave on the 20th anniversary of Stonewall, and testimonies from veterans of both the Stonewall, and earlier Compton's Diner uprisings.

Conscious Voices Twilight Bey on the 25 anniversary of the ganbg truce, and Dennis Kucinich at Comfest

59:59 minutes (54.92 MB)

In answer to the on-going controversy over the incident at Comfest regarding a band having been told not to play a particularly incendiary song, "Fuck the Police", written 30+ years ago in response to systemic police brutality in South Central L.A., we have a recent interview with Twilight Bey, one of the members of The Bloods who signed the historic truce between the Crips and the Bloods. It speaks to the circumstances that inspired the song, and reveals an alternate perspective - one of a gang member-turned community organizer as opposed to that of a commercially successful singer commenting from a particular social niche.
The interview was conducted by Pacifica Radio's Davey D.
Also, audio from a speech given by Dennis Kucinich at this year's Comfest.
