In this special episode of TQC, they share a little about their own experiences dealing with chronic illness then talk to singer-songwriter Stefan Alexander, who had his own struggle with a chronic illness called Central Sensitization Syndrome. The illness caused him to take a hiatus from his art, but he's back and better than ever with fab new music, which you'll hear in the episode!Show Links:Spondylitis Association of America Preventing HIV with the 1 per day PrEP pill Jacob Riis Beach, NYC LGBT Historic Sites Stefan Alexander's website Stefan on social: Instagram  |  Twitter  |  YouTubeQueers N Peers, July 29th, 2019Mayo Clinic video discussing Central Sensitization Syndrome

TQC talks with Robert Fieseler, an award-winning journalist and nonfiction author. His debut book, Tinderbox: The Untold Story of the Up Stairs Lounge Fire and the Rise of Gay Liberation, delves into the 1973 fire that killed 32 people and devastated the gay community of New Orleans and beyond. It was the largest mass murder of gays until 2016, was buried for decades, and only recently emerged as a catalyzing event of the gay liberation movement. Fieseler’s Tinderbox won the 2019 Edgar Award for Best Fact Crime.  Show Links:Robert Fieseler’s websiteFollow Robert on Twitter Follow Robert on InstagramRobert’s husband, artist Ryan LeitnerEast End BooksSpikey van DykeyWorld Pride NYC
