The Gayest Generation Ep. 2 - Randy Hasso

Wed, 09/09/2020 - 9:07am

When: September 9, 2020

Welcome to The Gayest Generation, where we hear LGBTQ Elders speak for themselves. Every episode, we sit down with a different member of the LGBTQ community who laid the foundation for the freedoms we have today. Stories—their stories—make noise where there is silence and that silence has lived for far too long. It is time we let their voices fill the room.

In this episode, we speak with Randy Hasso. He shares his experiences in Tunisia as a member of the Peace Corps, growing up on a pickle farm, and what it was like to care for AIDS patients in small town America during a time where even the President wouldn’t say the word AIDS publicly. Due to adult language and situations, viewer discretion is advised. This is the Gayest Generation.

This episode features the following music:
Prospects by Chris Juergenson
Epiphany by Eternal Jazz Project
Freedom by Jeff Wahl
Seasons by Eternal Jazz Project

Special thanks to our guest Randy Hasso, as well as to those who make The Gayest Generation a reality.
