Carolyn Gage on Woman-Stirred Radio   Leave a comment

Gage as Joan of Arc
This Thursday, June 23rd, at 4:15, Merry Gangemi welcomes lesbian-feminist playwright, author, activist Carolyn Gage to Woman-Stirred Radio.  
Gage’s collection of plays, The Second Coming of Joan of Arc and Selected Plays won the 2008 Lambda Literary Award in Drama, just one of many and various awards, including the Oregon Playwrights Award, the Maine Playwrights Award, the Lynda Hart Memorial Grant from the Astrea Foundation, and the Janine C. Rae Award for the Advancement of Women’s Culture from the National Women’s Music Festival.
I’m particularly interested in the ways a specific lesbian identity has been diminished in our so-called progressive culture and why the identity of Butch remains vital, and revolutionary within Queer identity-politics, transsexual choices, and pregnant men.

So please join us on Woman-Stirred Radio, this Thursday, June 23rd at 4:15 (eastern) for a fascinating discussion about lesbian art and culture. Woman-Stirred Radio broadcasts live every Thursday afternoon from 4 to 6 (eastern). You can listen in locally on WGDR 91.1fm and WGDH 97,1fm or stream us live.
