The Making Queer History podcast that explores people and events throughout queer history.

This month Will and Laura discuss the writer Reinaldo Arena's, a queer man who lived in Cuba during the rise of Castro. They then discuss being creative in difficult times, swearing, and why Castro truly sucks. 

 

The queer recommendation this month is the novel Kindness For Weakness which you can find here: https://fortisbook.ca/products/9780385743242-0385743246-kindness-for-weakness?variant=15387653963849&utm_campaign=gs-2018-11-20&utm_source=google&utm_medium=smart_campaign
