The Gayest Generation Ep. 8 - Stephanie Byers

Wed, 09/15/2021 - 3:48pm

When: September 16, 2021

Welcome to The Gayest Generation, where we hear LGBTQ older adults 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. 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 Kansas State Congresswoman Stephanie Byers. We learn about what it’s like to be one of first openly transgender people elected to a State Legislature, growing up as a member of the Chickasaw Nation, and what it means to live life authentically.

AADL is excited to announce that you can listen to this episode, or any episode of The Gayest Generation, on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, or YouTube!
