Episode Notes

This week, host Ronald Young Jr. talks to June Thomas about her new book A Place of Our Own: Six Spaces That Shaped Queer Women’s Culture . In the interview, June explains what it was like to bring journalistic rigor to a world that’s close to her heart. She also discusses her pivot to full-time book writing, the importance of passing history to future generations, and her use of the phrase “queer women” to describe a group that goes well beyond that label.

After the interview, Ronald and co-host Isaac Butler talk about culture and identity in their art.

In the exclusive Slate Plus segment, June designs her ideal queer space.
