Gain an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at a new LGBTQ+ podcast and website coming to Des Moines called Queer View Mirror, which will highlight queer history in the metro and beyond.
This is great timing as Capital City Pride launches their first ever LGBTQ+ History series as a part of their year round programming for the LGBTQ+ community and their allies in 2020-2021. We will focus specifically on why this is an important conversation, especially in today’s climate, and the reasons why the creator, Jordan Duesenberg, feels it is necessary to highlight our queer history for the LGBTQ+ community and allies.
An informal discussion will be led by Eugenia Kutsch-Stanton (CLP ’15) and Jen Carruthers (CLP ’18) as they sit down to chat with Jordan about his new project. There will be time left at the end for audience Q&A and if interested, there will be opportunities presented for how you can get involved in the LGBTQ+ community and continue to make history.
